What are the rules on final paychecks in California?

By: LawInfo
Generally, an employer must issue a final paycheck to an employee immediately if the employee is being fired or laid off. The final paycheck must include all unpaid wages and any unused vacation time. However, an employer must issue a final paycheck to an employee who has resigned not more than seventy-two (72) hours following the resignation, unless the employee has given seventy-two (72) hours notice of his or her resignation, in which case the final paycheck must be issued on the date of resignation.
