Must we hand over final paycheck, or is it OK to put it in the mail?

Q. One of our employees is resigning at the end of the month. Can we mail her final paycheck?

A. If the employee gives at least 72 hours’ notice of her in­­tention to quit, then her final wages (including accrued vacation) must be paid at the time of quitting and must be paid at her place of employment. If the employee gives less than 72 hours’ notice, mailing the check is sufficient.
