Hi Atty,

I would like to seek your assistance in regards with my situation.

I resigned from a well known international bank Last April 17, 2012. Before that, I gave them 32 days of notice before my last day also, so, they also put a hold on my salary for April 1-17, (My last salary was on March 30).

Now, they provided me a check on June 8, however, I find it too small for me since April has a lot of holidays on it and the check only consist of my work salary from April 1-15 only instead of up to 17th.

Now, I still haven't got any response from them or at least any feedback on the status of it. I'm really frustrated with what's happening here and I really need that money to pay some dues.

My question is, is there a law that says on how many days should a voluntary separated employee get his "final pay"?

you are entitled to be paid for the days that you actually worked or entitled to leave

unfortunately, there is no law or rule on this, afaik. so the standard is a 'reasonable' time which most companies have applied as 60 days

This topic is what im really looking for.

Hi Attorney,

Since that there is no rule regarding with the number of days on when can you get your final pay. How about if we actually agreed to a certain condition to finish some pending issue before my employer will gave my salary. Which I actually did and even the customer confirmed that the issue is fix but still my employer put a hold with salary.

And even now when I try to follow-up regarding with my salary. He just keep saying that he is busy or he told me that the customer might call again for follow up concerns.

Glad to find a forums just like this.

More power!
