A person works on a computer to issue final paychecks and tax forms

Most states have rules on when final paychecks must be issued. In some states, you’ll need to provide final paychecks within two weeks of your team’s final work date. In others, you must have the checks available on their last day of work. The best way to find the final paycheck laws by state in 2022 is to contact your state’s labor office directly.

Be sure to do this for every state in which you have employees.

You can find your state’s address, phone number, and website here:
