    I found this on the California sight. http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/FAQ_Paydays.htm


    "The place of the final wage payment for employees who are terminated (or laid off) is the place of termination. The place of final wage payment for employees who quit without giving 72 hours prior notice and without specifically requesting that their final wages be mailed to them, is at the office of the employer within the county in which the work was performed. Labor Code Section 208 Therefore, it is imperative that an employee who quits without giving 72 hours prior notice return to the office of the employer 72 hours after quitting and request his or her final wage payment."

      So, what's wrong with advising the employee that his check is ready and he can come to pick it up?
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        this is also stated, also what is your company policy on such a matter 202. (a) If an employee not having a written contract for a
        definite period quits his or her employment, his or her wages shall
        become due and payable not later than 72 hours thereafter, unless the
        employee has given 72 hours previous notice of his or her intention
        to quit, in which case the employee is entitled to his or her wages
        at the time of quitting. Notwithstanding any other provision of law,
        an employee who quits without providing a 72-hour notice shall be
        entitled to receive payment by mail if he or she so requests and
        designates a mailing address. The date of the mailing shall
        constitute the date of payment for purposes of the requirement to
        provide payment within 72 hours of the notice of quitting.
        why make this hard on yourself, is it really that big of a deal to just cut and mail the check and be done with it, we all have employee's who "leave us hanging" but business must continue,

          Nothing wrong with it but they had not provided us with a telephone number. Clearly the law does say the employee does have a responsibility to contact the employer.

            Exactly, the employee must request it be mailed. If the employee doesn't request it, the employer is not obligated to run all over town looking for someone in order to pay them. Their responsibility ends when they cut the check in the 72 hours window. It's the employee's responsibilty to communicate that information. Happily the state of CA doesn't expect the employer to be a mind reader so consequently if the employee fails to tell the employer what to do with the check, the final payment place is the employer's office.

                Okay, I think we've beaten this into the ground about as far as we need to. Time to move on, folks.
                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.
