Can my employer make me pick up my last paycheck?

I was recently fired from my place of employment. I usually get it directly deposited into my account. For my last paycheck, they want me to come in and pick it up... preferred that I sign a bunch of paperwork. I was advised not to sign anything, but is my employer responsible for mailing me my last paycheck? I was a home health aide and the main office is over 25 miles away. Without the paycheck, getting gas money is less than probable.

I don't see anything in Michigan's Payment of Wages Act that covers this situation. You might try contating the wage and hour division at (517) 335.0400. They may be able to help.
