What Is Wage & Hour Law?
Wage and hour laws are a group of laws that protect employees by governing the wage rates an employer can pay, as well as the hours an employee must be compensated. These laws also cover issues such as overtime, mandatory meal and rest breaks, minimum wage, tips, vacation and sick leave, severance, and more. Most states have their own wage and hour laws, in addition to the federal law called the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
How Long Does an Employer Have to Pay You in Arizona?
As long as you are actively employed, your employer must pay you at least twice a month, with no longer than 16 days in between, under Arizona’s wage and hour laws. Employees who are terminated must receive their final paycheck within seven working days or by the next scheduled payday, whichever is sooner. If an employee quits, Arizona employers are permitted to issue a final paycheck on the next scheduled payday.
If your employer fails to issue your last paycheck within the allotted time or withholds wages you are owed when you are terminated, you then have the right to either file a civil lawsuit or a wage complaint with the Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA).
