Final Paychecks After a Layoff
If you’ve lost your job in a layoff, you are no doubt concerned about your finances, benefits, and finding new work.
There is help available to laid-off workers from the government, in the form of unemployment compensation. But your former employer has legal obligations as well.
For most laid-off workers, money is the biggest concern. You are entitled to receive your final paycheck within time limits set by state law.
Some states give employees who have been laid off or fired a right to receive their paychecks quickly, sometimes on the day they lose their jobs or a day or two later. Other states allow employers to wait until the next regularly scheduled payday to cut a final check.
