Employers are required to pay wages regularly at least twice each calendar month and within 7 days after the end of each pay period. . Discharged employees must be paid in full on the day of discharge or no later than the next workday. Employees who quit or resign must be paid no later than the next regular payday. Employees must be notified in writing or through a posted notice of any changes in pay arrangements prior to the change, and employees must be furnished with a pay statement at payday showing gross wages, itemized deductions, net pay, and pay period.
Complaints for unpaid wages may be filed with the Department of Labor within one year from the time the wages became due.
