San Antonio, TX asked in Employment Law for Missouri

Q: Quit my job without two week notice. Should I still get paid last paycheck?

Gave a two day notice instead. I was an exempt salary employee. It was an at will position. Just want to know next steps of action since I cannot view a paystub nor see that I got paid today 12/1. Paycheck isn't technically due until 12/2, but I get paid a day early. Right after I quit on 11/23, my bosses mentioned that they sold their company and their last day was 11/30. Could this put a stall in payroll? Didn't know if it's the new owners job to pay out now. Thanks

A: You are entitled to your last paycheck. An at-will employee is not required to give two-weeks notice. Conversely, an employer can file at at-will employee without any notice.
