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.)?

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)
