Should I allow my employer to deduct $20 from my salary?

One day, the secretary e-mailed me saying pay cheques are being sent by mail. I did not know why, because they usually hand it to us personally during work days. Apparently, operations has ceased. After 7 days, I told her that I have not received it in the mail yet. Then I realized that they have my previous address. I went back to our previous address and was not able to retrieve the mail. I told them about that, and now they are saying that the bank will charge then $20 if they cancel the cheque, and they will not be responsible for that. (Well, neither am I) What should I do?

I don't know what Canadian laws say about this kind of situation.

Update:

I live in BC

    You are responsible for them sending the check to your old address - YOU didn't tell them you had a new address and they had no other way to know. Since it was your fault the check was misdirected, why should they pay?

    i do no longer think he can "high-quality" you or in different words deduct pay for time which you certainly have been working, yet i'm uncertain it rather is a conflict you desire to combat. in case you're earnings, then there is a few variety in working hours for reimbursement yet as an hourly worker you ought to be paid from the time you checklist for accountability till you go away. Now, in case your employer is paying you ten minutes for each 5 minutes you artwork for the time of a lunch destroy era or after your universal working hours, then i could call it honest, in any different case, no no longer appropriate. the different side is he ought to easily hearth you for no longer being to artwork on time. base line is anybody is late each and every so in many cases by way of an accident on the throughway which you ought to no longer get to yet another course and evade or the previous clock did no longer circulate off by way of a skill outage excuse, yet you ought to try to be a conscientious worker and be at artwork and in a position to be effective on the beginning up of your scheduled artwork day, take in straight forward terms the approved destroy cases and lunch cases and artwork till the tip of your scheduled artwork era. once you're inevitably late, grant to make up the time after hours or at lunch and permit the boss understand you think in giving an truthful days artwork for an truthful days pay.

    You are one that didn't keep your employer up to date on your address.

    As a result, you are responsible for paying the stop payment fee.

    and then do a "search" on their website.

    Or you could try the "Labour Relations Board" but I don't know if they would be the ones to ask. http://www.lrb.bc.ca/
