What are the rules on final paychecks in Colorado?

Generally, under Colorado Rev. Stat. Ann. § 8-4-109, an employer must immediately issue a final paycheck to a terminated employee, or within six (6) hours of the beginning of the next business day if the payroll office is closed. Additionally, if the payroll office is offsite, then the employer must issue the final paycheck to the terminated employee within twenty-four (24) hours of his or her termination. An employee who quits his or her job is not entitled to a final paycheck until the next regularly scheduled pay date.
