What Is The Law Regarding Paydays?

Employers must pay their employees within six days of the end of the pay period during which the wages were earned if the individual was employed for five or six days during the pay period. If the employee was employed for seven days or a period of less than three days, they must be paid no later than seven days from the end of the pay period. Discharged (fired or laid off) employees must be paid all wages due and owing on the day of termination.
