Final Pay Laws By State
Did you know that each state has their own rules on when an employees final paycheck is due?
Here in Wisconsin, if an employee quits, it is due to them on their next scheduled pay day.
If an employee is fired, it is also the next scheduled payday, or if the termination is the result of a merger, relocation, cessation, or liquidation of the business, final pay is due within 24 hours.
It is definitely not an exciting read, but here is a link to the details on the Wisconsin State Legislature website.
