  • Seasonal work and final pay California

    I am currently working a part-time holiday retail job that ends the day after Christmas. It was my understanding that I would receive my final paycheck on the last day I work (Dec. 26), but when I mentioned this to my manager, I was told that I would receive my final paycheck on the next regular payday, which is Jan. 1, 2010. Is this correct? Are seasonal jobs not subject to the final-pay-on-final day rule?

    If they are terminating your status as an employee, or even putting you on an inactive status with no foreseeable recall date, yes, the final pay rule is invoked.
