Paychecks: How do I get my last one?

unemployed_personQ: I didn’t get my last paycheck. What can I do?

A: Employers are not required by federal law to give former employees their final paycheck immediately. Some states, however, may require immediate payment. If the regular payday for the last pay period an employee worked has passed and the employee has not been paid, contact the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division or the state labor department. DOL also has mechanisms in place for the recovery of back wages.
