Thanks for your patience. The answer to your question is that they have to provide you your final paycheck at the time they terminate you unless:

  • When the employer's accounting unit, responsible for the drawing of payroll checks, is not regularly scheduled to be operational, then the wages due the separated employee shall be made available to the employee no later than six hours after the start of such employer's accounting unit's next regular workday.
  • If the accounting unit is located off the work site, the employer shall deliver the check for wages due the separated employee no later than twenty-four hours after the start of such employer's accounting unit's next regular workday to one of the following locations selected by the employer:
    • a) the work site,
      b) the employer's local office,
      c) the employee's last-known mailing address.
