  • time frame to receive paycheck

    If a West Virginia business fires an employee, how much time is allowed to issue them their paycheck? Can it be issued at the next pay period?

  • #2
    Chapter 21, Article 5, Section 4 of the West Virginia Code stipulates when an employee is terminated, they must recieve their paycheck within seventy-two (72) hours.

      another question

      Is that 72 hours counted on actual work days? For example if the employee was fired on Saturday and the Business is closed on Sunday, would the check have to go out on tuesday or wednessday?

        It is simply 72 hours, work day or not.
