Hello Richard,

It's always legal to get paid in cash.

Here's what I think you mean. Is it legal for the employer or employee not to record and/or report the payment? The answer is always NO, whether he pays you in cash or by check.

But , I must tell you, it happens all the time, all across the country. But that doesn't make it legal.

I hope this answers your question. If there is anything that you do not understand, please let me know and I will be happy to explain further.

Thank you,

P.S. I am frequently asked how someone can specifically request that I, personally, answer a question. Here’s how: for new questions in the future, always begin your question with “QUESTION FOR THE JUDGE.”
