  • Ex- employer withholding pay until sign quit notice - Oklahoma

    My husband quit his job 31/2 to 4 weeks ago and we were told he would have to turn in his fuel card before he could get paid and we did that and today we got a letter in the mail saying he has to go there and sign this notice. In the state of oklahoma can your ex employer hold your check until you come in and sign a termination/quit notice?

    According to my chart on this sort of thing the rules for a terminated employee in Oklahoma payment is due by "Next regular payday (by certified mail if employee requests".

    OK is not my state, and I do not know anything past what I just said. I do know that the employee in theory can file a wage claim with state DOL for unpaid wages and neither the gas card not turned in or some form not signed are legal reasons to not pay the employee.

      final paycheck Ok: Employers in Oklahoma must pay wages in full, less offsets, at the next regular designated payday established for the pay period in which the work was performed. Payment must be made by regular pay channels or by certified mail, postmarked within the deadline if requested by the employee. A CBA may supersede this section.

          Collective Bargaining Agreement.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

            What is a Collective Bargaining Agreement?
