  • Not Paid upon Termination Colorado

    I was laid off Friday and did not receive my final paycheck. Monday has come and gone and still have not been paid. My company said it would be direct deposit as always and I should have it Monday (today). Should I file a complaint with the department of labor? From my understanding I should have been paid immediately upon being laid off. And if not then with in 6 hours of payroll being operational on Monday. Please let me know what to do. Thanks.

    The Colorado Wage Claim Act requires that when separation occurs at the volition of the employer, the employer must pay all unpaid wages immediately or within 24 hrs. if payroll unit offsite. If you don't get your wages, yes file a claim/complaint with your state's DOL.

          Although Betty3 is correct, realistically speaking, it's very likely that you will have your check before the DOL can even get around to working your claim. Not saying don't file, just saying you might be wasting your time.

          Call the employer today and see what they say. In my many years of managing payroll operations for some very large employers, in order to issue a payment via direct deposit, the regularly scheduled payroll has to be processed and the only way of issuing a direct deposit "off cycle" is to process a wire transfer.
          I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

            That's why I said "If" you don't get your wages . . . .
