Q. What are the deadlines for paying employees who are terminated or resign from employment?
A. Under the Texas Payday Law, an employee who has been involuntarily discharged must be paid in full no later than the sixth calendar day after the date of termination.
An employee who leaves his or her employment for any other reason (i.e., by resigning) must be paid no later than the next regularly scheduled payday.
The compensation due to the employee includes wages for labor or services rendered, as well as any vacation, holiday, sick leave, parental leave or severance pay owed to the worker pursuant to an employment agreement or policy.
