I have this problem. The worker is too ill to come personally to sign for his monthly wage. In fact, it is all just sick leave pay. His wife is not allowed to fetch it on his behalf. How can one legally let someone else sign for the money, in order that you do not get disputes afterwards that he never received the money. What is complicating it more, is this common law marriages practice going on among them. You can never be sure who you are dealing with.
