    Hello everyone,

    Well, I gave me two weeks notice on May 10th, and my last day was on May 24th. Now, its been about a week since I quit, and I still haven't receive my paycheck. During my time there we always get paid on Friday, so I want to know when they will mail my final paycheck? Or do I have to call them? Thanks!

    Laws vary by state, you didn't say if you work Express or Ground.

    I worked at FedEx ground, and was a packaged handler, I ask this because my manager said they would mail my final paycheck, but it has been a week now and I still haven't got it.

    Ground ? Ruh roh. One of three things happened to your paycheck.

    1) It is in the form of a paper airplane, whizzing around the terminal managers officer ... and/or in the form of a paper football, being kicked through the field goal fingers of said manager.
    2) It is in the form of several dozen very long rectangles at the bottom of a paper shredder.
    3) Someone ate it.

    Hopefully it's number 1.

    Oh, and congratulations. Go buy a Pepsi and celebrate.

    Check your state laws. Some states require your last check to be given on your last day. If that's the case you might be able to file a wage claim.

    I don't think they are required to mail it. Why not just stop in and pick it up? Damn. Sometimes people make things complicated.

    You mean how he gave them 2 weeks notice which is more than enough time to get his paycheck on his last day? I think some employers just want to be dicks.

    Payroll isn't done on command. It has to be processed. But the check was printed and ready the same day it always is. The next week after your final week. Did you turn your I.D. in? They will hold your check until you return your badge...

    It can be done in matter of days which he gave 2 weeks notice. As long as his hours don't vary it shouldn't be a problem to have it ready on his last day. In CA they cannot hold it for any reason and the employer can incur penalties for each day he is not paid.This is why he should check his state laws and know his rights.

    It can be done in a matter of days, but they should have to calculate the hours worked on his final day and run payroll as soon as he clocks out? Makes sense...

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    The check will be available on the payday following your last work day and will be held until you turn in all company equipment (ID tag).

    MAKAVELI Well-Known Member

    Not too complicated. You have a set schedule for that week and adhere to it. Makes even more sense. Like I said it depends on his states laws.

    maybe in New York but not in California they can't legally hold your check for anything.

    It pains me to admit that SPH is right. In CA payment is due immediately when the employer is given 72 hours written notice that you are quitting. What a dumb law!

    MAKAVELI Well-Known Member

    It's not dumb. It's to stop employers from screwing employees out of wages earned. If there is no law than a person would be forced to sue an employer for wages earned if that employer held on to their check or tried to dock their wages for some worn out uniforms and an id badge. I don't know about anyone else but whenever I left a job I wanted a clean separation and have no other business with that employer after my last day.

    Penalizing an employer a full days wage if they write you a check the next day after you quit is dumb. I have no problem giving them 72 hours and then fining them (to cover a weekend), but immediately is ridiculous.
