Remedy for employee who was laid off

Employers are not required by federal law to give former employees their final paycheck 
immediately. Some states, however, may require immediate payment. If the regular payday for the last 
pay period an employee worked has passed and the employee has not been paid, the employee should 
contact the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Wage and Hour Division or the state labor department. 
DOL also has mechanisms in place for the recovery of back wages.
