Good afternoon Michelle. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you. Can you provide me a bit more information? Do you have a power of attorney for your boyfriend giving you the authority to get his check? Thanks.

Thanks for following up. In order for the boss to release it to you, the boss would need to have you present him with a power of attorney signed by your boyfriend and notarized. Otherwise, the boss has no protection because he has no written document upon which to rely allowing him to release the check. If he were to release it without a power of attorney, then later your boyfriend could come back and hold him liable for doing so. Let me know if you would like a template for such a power of attorney.
