How soon must an employer pay wages to an employee after terminating the employment of an employee? How soon if an employee resigns?
If the employee is separated by the employer, all wages are due immediately and payable within 24 hours of separation. If the employee does not have a written contract for a definite period and resigns, the wages become due and payable on the next regular payday. These provisions may not apply to the earnings of a sales agent earning commissions.
