Existing law provides that all unpaid wages earned by a discharged employee are due immediately upon discharge. This bill would instead require that, subject to specified exceptions, an employer pay all unpaid wages due to a discharged employee within a reasonable time not exceeding 24 hours after discharge, excluding weekends and holidays. The bill would provide that payment may be made by mail to the most current address of the employee in the employer's payroll records or to an alternate address provided by the employee at the time of discharge, or by making payment available to the discharged employee at a location specified by the employer. The bill would also make conforming changes to existing provisions.
