  • Final pay when resigning mid-month, California California

    Hi, my wife was a teacher at a (rather shady) charter school in California, with a monthly salary. She was at an "at-will" contract, meaning she could resign or be fired at any time without notice. Due to various problems at her school, she applied and received an offer for a position at another school. She quit her old job and started her new job in the middle of the month, but her old empoyer is now trying to not pay her for the half-month that she worked prior to quitting. Is there any way they can legally do this? If not, do you know specifically what laws and what sections we can point to?

    No, there is not.
