Q. Is it true that according to federal law, employees must be paid within two weeks of completing their work, no matter the excuse (computer glitch, etc.)?
A. No. State wage payment laws govern the timing of pay. In Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law provides that an employer must designate regular paydays. Absent a written agreement to the contrary, employees must be paid “within the standard time lapse customary in the trade or within 15 days from the end of a pay period.” (43 P.S. § 260.3)
