I am sorry that you have lost your job, finding yourself suddenly unemployed is never easy.
Colorado Wage Act Section 8-4-109(1) requires that the employer provide your final paycheck immediately upon termination. If the accounting department responsible for paychecks is not open at the time of termination, the final paycheck must be provided within 6 hours of the accounting department opening, unless they are located off-site, in which case the employer must provide the paycheck within 24 hours.
If your employer fails to provide your final paycheck within the above applicable deadline, you may write them a demand letter pursuant to the provisions of Section 8-4-109(2). If the employer does not comply with the terms of this section within 14 days of the demand letter, the employer faces certain penalties.
