  • Late Pay Check

    I work for a small business where I am one of two employee's. Our employer often "forgets" his checkbook on payday, so we usually get our paycheck 1-2 days late. Is this legal?

    No, it isn't. But it's not going to raise as much reaction in the state DOL as a company that wasn't paying their employees at all

    What state are you in? With that information I can tell you what the laws are regarding the timing of paychecks.
    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.

        In Indiana, the paycheck must be released no later than ten days after the end of the pay period.

            All I can find on West Virginia pay laws is that you have to be paid no less frequently that once every two weeks.

            The answer is the same to you as above. While it may be illegal as long as you get the check on Monday it's unlikely that the DOL will take very much action.

              no pay for a month or longer...

              god ****, 1-2 days?
              i work for a surveying company in my home alaska. my paychecks and the rest of the employees of this small company dont recieve paychecks for weeks past due. i was wondering if this was legal and did a little research. i think i need to have a little chat with my boss/company owner. right now i was to be paid on the 8th of july, (now the 15th) and soon this friday, the 22nd of july.

                As with the other posters, if your conversation with the boss does no good, contact your state DOL.
