Wages Not Paid on Time

Employers must pay workers at least twice a month, and when you quit or are fired or laid off, you must be paid on or before a strict deadline. You might have experienced a violation if you have experienced any of the following circumstances:

  • You were fired, but did not immediately receive all wages you were owed;
  • You quit with 72 hours notice, but were not paid all wages at that time;
  • You quit without giving 72-hours notice, but were not paid all wages within 72 hours of quitting;
  • Your employer had you sign a “waiver” or “release” of any right to be paid when wages were due;
  • You earned overtime pay, but did not receive that overtime pay in the paycheck you received in the pay period immediately after the one you earned the overtime in;
  • Your employer failed to conspicuously post a notice specifying when paydays are; or,
  • You are a farm laborer and you were not paid at least once a week on a business day designated in advance.

In addition to these general rules applicable to the timely payment of wages, particular industries – including movies/entertainment, performance venues, and agriculture – have special rules that might apply to you. Contact us and we can tell you if you might have a claim.
