No. And why would you? An employee's pay stub should reflect his employer as well as the hours worked, the vacation pay earned to date and the like.
To hire him (and pay him) from one company while pretending to have paid him from another is the kind of subterfuge that will surely get you in trouble with the IRS. I don't advise it in the least.
I did not do that, but my employer did...
Audrey, did your employer do this to you? If so, then you should find out if it was an innocent error (seems unlikely, but I suppose it could happen). If so, then I would ask them to correct it.
If not, then I would seriously reconsider working there. Something's up and you don't want to wind up going to work one morning, only to find out that the doors are locked and the company's folded in the dark of night.
You might also consult an experienced tax attorney. S/he should be able to tell you if doing such a thing is legally allowed and/or advisable. If it's legal, but not advisable, you still might want to steer clear of the situation.
Why get caught up in a net when you're not one of the fish?
This sounds suspicious to me, also.
Audrey , Are you saying the actual check had one companies name on it and the check stub a different companies name on it ?
Do you know is your employer part of what is called a parent company ?
Do they use a payroll service ?
Are the wages pre-taxed ?
