Termination: I quit my job; when can I get paid?

I was just wondering how long after you leave your job does the employer have to pay you your final check. This does pertain to my previous job in Wisconsin.

In most cases, Wisconsin employers must pay in full employees who quit or are discharged no later than the date they would normally be paid if they were still employed, according to Ellen Frantz, a Johns, Flaherty & Collins attorney with a concentration in employment law. So if your usual pay day is the 1st of each month for work performed in the prior month, you should be paid in full by the first day of the month following your last day of work.

If you receive commissions, those also would need to be paid according to the usual commission schedule followed by your employer, said Frantz.
