The Situation -- Jersey Score Settled ... $5k for Bouncy Paychecks

EXCLUSIVE

Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino got a slap on the wrist from his home state for screwing up paychecks to employees at his failed tanning salon.

New Jersey's Division of Wage and Hour Compliance filed a lawsuit against Sitch earlier this year because -- as we reported -- he was accused of bouncing multiple checks last year to his workforce at Boca Tanning.

The state won the lawsuit, and on August 31, Mike got hit with the bill for $5,130. We've called his reps to see if he's settled up yet.

We're guessing NJ isn't accepting personal checks from Sitch these days.
