Your Rights When You Leave a Job
Whether you leave your job voluntarily or through a termination or lay off, there are a number of loose ends you will want to tie up before you walk out the door.
The first kind is Severance Pay. While no law requires severance pay, an employer may be legally obligated to give you severance pay if it promised to do so.
Many states have laws that specify when departing employees must be given their final paycheck. Often, the time limit depends on whether you are leaving because you quit or because you were fired or laid off.
