Hollywood, FL asked in Employment Law for Florida

Q: What's the law regarding getting paid upon termination. Is employer obligated to pay or do I have to wait?

They're stating they will mail my check but I don't trust that I will receive it when I normally would or that it'll be sent to correct address even though I informed them of a new mailing address, they had my original address wrong. Aren't they supposed to pay at time of termination if asked?

A: They need to pay within a reasonable time which is generally speaking the normal pay period. If they do not pay, contact an attorney. Generally speaking you can get an attorney to help at no cost to you with this type of case but it all depends on the facts.
