What are the rules on final paychecks in Oregon?

Typically, an employer must issue a final paycheck to a former employee by the end of the business day following the date that the employer is terminated. If the employee quits without giving at least forty-eight (48) hours notice, the employer is required to issue a final paycheck within five (5) days of the employee’s last day, excluding weekends and holidays, or the next payday, whichever is earlier.   However, if the employee gives at least forty-eight (48) hours notice, then a final paycheck must be issued on the employee’s last work day, or on the next business day if the employee’s last work day falls on a weekend or holiday.
