Hello again, Anne.
Pursuant to Labor Code Section 202, an employee who resigns without giving 72 hours notice must be paid by the employer within 72 hours of providing such notice. Payment shall typically be made by making the payment available at the employer's place of business in the county where the employee was employed, or mailing the final check to an address designated by the employee.
Here is a link which summarizes the law on this issue:
Since you resigned verbally, I would put it in writing by e-mail and certified mail so you have proof it was received by the employer and they cannot deny that you tendered your resignation. If payment is not forthcoming within 72 hours, then a complaint may be filed with the state labor board which can collect the wages owed as well as significant penalties on your behalf.
Here is a link to file a wage claim if that becomes necessary:
