Generally, under Haw. Rev. Stat. § 388-3, an employer must issue a final paycheck to a terminated employee immediately, or if immediate payment is not possible, no later than the next business day. However, an employee who quits his or her job without at least one pay period’s notice is not entitled to a final paycheck until the next regularly scheduled pay date. On the other hand, if an employee gives at least one pay period’s notice, then he or she is entitled to a final paycheck immediately.
