Payment Of Final Wages On Termination Of Employment

Written By: Melissa C. Marsh, Esq., California Business Attorney, December 2005

If an employee is terminated, or quits with at least 72 hours notice, the employer must remit payment of the employee’s earned wages at the time of termination. If the employee quits with less than 72 hours notice, the employer is required to pay the employee’s final wage within 72 hours of the date of termination. [...]
