Last Paycheck Law in Arizona


Your employer must pay your last paycheck within a certain time of your departure - or 2 to 3 times what you're owed if they miss the deadline.

Your employer must designate at least 2 days per month (not less than 16 days apart)
as paydays.


Your employer must pay you twice per month, and at intervals of not more than 16 days apart.


Furthermore, your employer must pay you in cash, check, or direct deposit.

Your employer must send your last paycheck before deadline

(depending on whether you quit or got fired) 


If you're Fired: Your employer must pay you within 7 days, or the end of the next regular pay period, whichever is sooner [A.R.S. § 23-353(A)].


If you QUIT: Your employer must pay you no later than the next regular payday during which the termination occurred [A.R.S. § 23-353(B)]. 

Your (former) employer may not withhold your final paycheck beyond these deadlines



If your employer violates this provision,

you may be entitled to recover TWICE or even THREE TIMES the amount
you're owed.

My last employer never paid me my final paycheck. How can I get it back?


The FLSA allows you to recover:

  • Back Pay (unpaid wages owed to you),

  • An Additional Equal Amount of Back Pay (thus, totaling TWICE the amount of unpaid wages owed to you),

  • Attorney Fees & Costs incurred in pursuing your unpaid wages.


If you believe you have a claim, speak with an attorney immediately regarding your rights and options.
