What is the policy in giving employees their final paychecks when they resign or get terminated from the job?

In California, employees must get a final paycheck immediately when their employment is terminated by the employer. If an employee voluntarily resigns and provides at least 72 hours of notice, the final paycheck must be provided at the end of employment. If an employee voluntarily resigns with less than 72 hours notice, the employer must provide the final paycheck within 72 hours of the employee quitting (Cal Labor Code Section 202).

Please reference state-specific guidelines for final pay.
