Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I agree with you...the law in PA expressly states that whenever an employee is separated from employment, the wages or compensation earned "shall become due and payable not later than the next regular payday of his employer on which such wages would otherwise be due and payable."
SO they can not wait "4 weeks for processing"
If they refuse to pay, you can report them to the PA department of Labor and Industry and you can sue them in small claims court
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
