The time requirement for a final paycheck depends on if the employee quit without notice, quit with at least 72-hours’ notice or was terminated or laid off. Certain industries are granted exceptions to the final paycheck requirements. For more information, see Wage and Hour Enforcement and Penalties.
Final Paycheck Worksheet can assist you in this process. Be sure to ask terminating employees to sign a copy of the
Final Paycheck Acknowledgment.
