Is my employer held accountable for not paying me on time?

It's been almost a week after I was supposed to receive my paycheck from my employer, I was supposed to receive a check in the mail, because we had switched pay cards. I was told I would receive the check by Friday, Monday at the latest. It is now Tuesday, and have yet to get paid. I went to my manager today and asked if I was still supposed to be waiting on the check or what? And she said that it should be on my new pay card. Is there any laws that prohibit this, because I work pay check to pay check and this is a little ridiculous.

Ohio law provides essentially that wages are to be paid within 15 days following the end of the pay period. If not paid after 30 days the employer becomes liable for an extra 6% or $200, whichever is more.
