Final Paycheck Problems
Our attorneys have represented hundreds of employment law clients. We have an in-depth understanding of the state and federal laws employers must follow.
In California, when an employer fires someone, the employer is responsible to provide the former worker with a final paycheck immediately. If an employee gives 72 hours’ notice and quits, the employer is responsible to give the employee a final paycheck on his or her last day of work.
One the other side — employers have 72 hours to tender a final paycheck when someone quits without notice. Often, employers break these laws by paying according to the company’s payroll schedule.
As employment law attorneys, we aggressively pursue compensation from employers that fail to follow the law. Employees who do not promptly receive correct payment are entitled to compensation according to their daily wages multiplied by 30 days. During a no-cost initial consultation, we will review your final paycheck to make sure it includes unused vacation days, as well as overtime pay you haven’t already received.
