If you are having trouble getting paid in your job you can file a complaint with the NC Department of Labor. That phone number is (800) 625-2267. Here is a wage and hour fact sheet from the NCDOL: http://www.nclabor.com/wh/whfacts.htm.
If your employer gives you a check that comes back as non-sufficient funds and you are having trouble getting paid, North Carolina does have a Worthless Check Program. To learn about that, go to: http://www.nccourts.org/Support/FAQs/FAQs.asp?Type=9
