Final Pay Information
If an employee gives at least 72 hours notice to the employer of his/her resignation, all wages and accrued vacation are due and payable on the last day of work. If an employee quits with fewer than 72 hours notice to the employer, all wages and accrued vacation are due and payable no later than 72 hours after notice is given. An employee who gives fewer than 72 hours notice is entitled to receive his/her final paycheck by mail upon request of the employee . The date the check is mailed is considered the date of payment for purposes of the 72 hour requirement.
If an employee is terminated or laid off by the employer, all wages and accrued vacation are due and payable immediately. It is not acceptable to ask or require an employee to wait until the next regular payday for his/her final paycheck.
The waiting time penalty for late payment of a final paycheck is equal to the employee's daily rate of pay for each day that overdue final wages remain unpaid (up to a maximum of 30 days).
