What Wages Have to be Paid at Termination?
If you are fired or laid off, you must be paid your final pay the day of termination. If you resign or quit, you still are owed all of these amounts, but it is legal for the employer to pay you in the next regularly scheduled payroll.
Here are the wages you are owed at the end of employment:
Your employer is not require to pay out unused sick time or other paid time off. If your employer bundles sick time, personal time and vacation into a single PTO bank, they may have to pay all of that out.
If you have not been paid these amounts at termination, or within a reasonable period of time thereafter, you should contact an employment lawyer as there are important steps you need to take to protect your rights.
