I've worked for a private detective company for several years . We use to receive our pay checks by mail . I have just recently stopped working for them .. I have a paycheck dated back to 9/4/13 in the amount of $1400.00 . Last week I sent them an email asking them if they would cut me a new check or do a direct deposit into my paypal account
Today I received a response from her saying they had repeatedly asked me to cash the checks and that the books are closed !
Do I have any legal rights to get paid for the work I did ?
Thank you ! 😔

You are definitely entitled to be paid. Have you tried depositing or cashing the old check? You might have to file a lawsuit under the MD wage and hour law. First I suggest you call the Dept. of Labor for MD (410 230-6110,6223,6116) to see if they can intervene on your behalf.
