    Iowa: final paycheck - If employee is fired: next scheduled payday.

    If employee quits: next scheduled payday. (Iowa Code Ann. ยง 91A.4.)

    If you don't get your paycheck by tomorrow (10-31), put in a claim with your state's DOL.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
