When an employer holds a final paycheck, it can be quite frustrating. Employees are used to be paid on a certain date, a date set by the employers themselves. But when a boss holds a final paycheck, employees naturally wonders when they will be paid and even IF they will be paid.
What is the law?
Every state may have different laws with regarding the timeliness of pay for hours worked. In Florida, one can’t say whether a check is due on pay day, the following day, the following week, or any set time frame. Also, consider that employees are paid daily, weekly, every two weeks, bi-monthly, and monthly – that would be a tough law to set.
