I feel somewhat sorry for the apprentice. When she returns, don't be too harsh, put it down to a shortfall in your company training. ;)

you should pay her next months wages by check -- a scanned one. then she if she can cash it. if she can't pay her bills and loses her house and her husband leaves her then that'll teach her a harsh lesson that she won't forget.

Aside of US based companies paying us, I've _never_ been payed with a check. It's simply not done anymore out here.
Most businesses out here dealing with consumers simply won't accept checks for a decade or so now (ever since the guarantee of the bank evaporated on them). Getting a so called "bank check" - basically a more secure form of cash to pay large amounts in person is still possible, but few people ever used one, let alone know it exists as a possible form of payment. I've used it a few times, but it's a hassle I try to avoid if possible.
I can well understand somebody younger never having seen a check up close and personal or even being familiar with the concept itself.

Wow.. Eye opener. We still can't survive without Cheques in India. Bankers Cheques are still the most secured way to get payment. Net transactions are catching up but still way too small a percentage.

Many of the large chain stores in England no longer take cheques, the firm ive presently at wont take cash either. Which can lead to some very amusing situations.

Where are you people, the moon?
In the U.S. checks are still commonly used in consumer and business transactions. I'll be paying my monthly personal bills in a few minutes -- electric, water, lawn cutting-- all by check. Yeah, many people use "direct deposit" but most still pay by check.
We pay all company invoices and payroll by check.
I just assumed the whole world did too! Very interesting to me.

I think ive been paid with one cheque & only ever wrote one cheque and that was to the tax man, now pretty much everything I do is on my online banking.
