Each year our staff prepare hundreds of memos, guides and templates, legal briefs, comment letters, and policy papers to help our members understand and manage their workplace requirements and risks, and to help advance the sensible regulation of the U.S. workplace.


Final Pay Requirements

Many states dictate when an employer must render an employee's final wages when that employee is separated from the employer's payroll. These time periods often vary depending on whether the employee was voluntarily or involuntarily discharged, among other considerations. CWC's State Final Pay Requirements resource enables members to quickly see a state's applicable end of employment pay requirements, including links to the applicable state statute.
