daily check writing fees

I work through a temporary staffing company that promotes "daily work...daily pay" but charge me a $4 per day "check writing fee" for the daily paycheck to be issued. Is this allowed?

Deductions from pay

You ask whether a temp agency that promotes daily pay can charge a check writing fee for the daily paycheck. Kentucky law requires that employees receive the full amount of their wages due on their "regular" payday. If the temp agency has a regular payday on which you are paid without deductions, charging a fee for being paid "early" may be lawful.

This answer is based solely on the limited information provided and does not constitute legal advice. This response does not create an attorney-client relationship.
