Despite the answers below, many states laws' are silent on this particular issue. What is clear is that you must be paid the applicable state or federal minimum wage for your occupation and age consistent with the company's normal payroll (or sooner in some states). If you are historically paid at a rate higher than minimum wage the employer may be able to reduce your pay to minimum wage. Depending on the circumstances many employers will do so and withhold the surplus above minimum wage until you comply with their reason for seeking to withhold wages in the first place. In certain states even this may not be legal without advance notice (often included in the employment agreement or application you sign when you first go to work for them).

Answerno. you have to be paid your final wages. it doesn't matter for what reason you were terminated. a lot of places tell you that you can't get your paycheck until you turn in uniforms or such but if you demand your check they have to pay you. if they refuse threaten to call a lawyer and go to court. AnswerCheck out http://www.dol.gov This is the US Dept. of Labor homepage, it can answer your questions. AnswerDo not sue or go to DOL. Contact your state employment commission. Almost all states have a "payday law" requiring employers to pay final wages within X days (usually on the regular pay day for your last week).

Maybe.

If the employee has a garnishment order in affect or mandatory child support deduction, worked on a commission or expense account and so forth, the employer can withhold a final check until such matters are resolved.
