I live and work in California. This past Saturday, when I took my second payroll check from PitneyBowes to Bank of America (the bank listed on the front of the check), I was charged $5 to cash it. Is this because the Bank of America branch on the check is in Stamford, CT? Does the "no charge for cashing payroll checks" rule not apply to employers with out of state headquarters?

The rule you refer to, which is codified at California Labor Code section 212, applies to ANY employer who employs employees in the State of California. You should not need to pay this fee.
You should contact a California employment lawyer regarding this issue to determine your rights.
