Late paychecks

Question Details: I currently work a P/T job for a small business (apx 10 employees) where my paychecks are given to me late on a consistent basis (sometimes so late that we end up a few checks behind). The employer does not have any signs posted stating the official pay date, but it is verbally agreed on that we are paid every two weeks on Saturdays... the employer always has some sort of excuse such as "my accountant was closed and I could not go and pick the checks up..." what are my legal rights regarding this issue... should the employer be required to add a late fee onto my check?
