Termination Checks

What is the timeline an employer has to give a terminated employee their last check?

When an employee has been discharged for any reason, According to the Colorado Wage Act, it is required that a last check for a terminated employee be issued to the employee for any wages due immediately, but that timeline can vary depending on the payroll/accounting department of the employer. Because StaffScapes is an offsite payroll company, StaffScapes has 24 hours to issue a check for any discharged employee. However, if the payroll department is onsite where the employee is discharged from, a last check is due immediately. If you have any questions about termination checks, terminations, or other tips on how to comply with employment law, please contact a StaffScapes representative at (303)466-7864.
