  • What is My Recourse Utah

    Originally posted by Pattymd View Post
    Since you were discharged, your final pay was due within 24 hours.

    Regarding accrued vacation, it is considered "wages" (which would mean it must be paid with your final pay) if it is owed under a "written employment agreement or employer policy".

    When do they say they will have your check ready for you?
    As you stated pay is due within 24 hours of being discharged, what is the "punishment" for the company if they do not pay me within 24 hours. Also as this was posted years ago, is this still the current law for 2013?

    MasterAsterix, you added your question to another poster's old thread. You should have started your own new thread. I will start one for you.
