It would have been nice to have had that happen, but as long as you were paid within 7 days of the end of that week, what they did appears to be legal.http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/faq_paydays.htm
"Other payroll periods such as weekly
, biweekly (every two weeks) or semimonthly (twice per month) when the earning period is something other than between the 1st and 15th, and 16th and last day of the month, must be paid within seven calendar days of the end of the payroll period within which the wages were earned
. Labor Code Section 204."
Labor Code § 204 is posted athttp://leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=lab&group=00001-01000&file=200-243
"(d) The requirements of this section shall be deemed satisfied by
the payment of wages for weekly, biweekly, or semimonthly payroll if
the wages are paid not more than seven calendar days following the
close of the payroll period."
I'm sorry this is not the answer you had probably hoped for, but it would be a disservice to you, and unprofessional of me, not to give you an accurate answer.
I hope this information is helpful.
