Employee Rights: Your Final Paycheck

When you leave a job either voluntarily or involuntarily, your employer is required to give you a final paycheck in a timely manner. According to West Virginia employment laws, employers are required to pay wages earned on or before the next payroll cycle. This rule applies to both resigning employees and terminated employees.

If an employee resigns without notice or is terminated, he/she is entitled to receive their final paycheck either on the next pay date or within four working days, whichever comes first.
