Out-of-state employers of California employees must pay such employees in accordance with the California Labor Code. Under Labor Code section 201, an employee who is terminated must be paid all wages he or she has earned at the time and place of termination. The three-day "grace" period only applies to employees who resign.

If you work in CA, your employer must abide by CA law. Upon firing or laying off an employee, the employer must pay the employee's final paycheck "immediately" upon termination - meaning that day. If they don't do so, your employer must pay one day's pay for each day you have to wait to get your check - up to a maximum of 30 days PLUS your attorney's fes. Contact an employment law attorney. Many of us offer a free initial phone consultation and take these types of matters at no cost to you. Law Office of Kristine S. Karila, 949-481-6909.
