When Should I Recieve My Final Check?
In California, according to the California Department of Industrial Relations, an employee who is discharged by his or her employer should be paid all of his or her wages, including accrued vacation time, immediately when terminated. Whether you quit, are fired, or are laid off, you should be paid in a timely manner after being separated from your employment. If you quit your job, you should be paid within 72 hours.
Exceptions To The Final Pay Rule
If an employer fails to pay you, he or she may be subject to a penalty. The only exception to this is if you are being temporarily laid off with a firm date as to when you will be returning to work. In that case, your employer may pay you on the next regularly scheduled pay day.
