I have a question as to when a California employer is required to give out payroll checks to employees based on the following example.
The company pays semi-monthly on the 15th and last day of the month. If the payday falls on a Saturday, the employee is paid on Friday. If the payday falls on a Sunday, the employee is paid on Monday.
The company observes the 6 major holidays. This year, December 31 falls on a Sunday. This would be the employee's payday. Under normal circumstances, the employee would be paid on Monday. However, THIS Monday happens to be January 1st-an observed holiday (and a new calendar year).
My question is, when is the employer required to pay the employee? Can they delay the checks an additional day to January 2nd? As it is the employee is already waiting a day "after" the payday because it fell on a Sunday.
Thank you for your replies.
