If the employee is involuntarily terminated, the final paycheck is due on the next regularly scheduled payday.
If the employee quits, the final paycheck is due on the next regularly scheduled payday. If an employee quits and the employee's whereabouts or address are not known to the employer, the employer need not pay the employee until:
- Ten (10) business days have elapsed after the employee has made a demand for the wages due to the employee; or
- The employee has furnished the employer with the employee's address where the wages may be sent or forwarded.
Payment of Unused Benefits on Termination
Indiana law does not address the payment of unused benefits upon termination. Generally speaking, an employer who has agreed, either in a written or oral policy or by practice, to pay employees for accrued but unused time off should include such payment in the final paycheck (whether or not a state has enacted a specific law to that effect).
More information regarding final paycheck requirements is available from the State of Indiana (Section 22-2-9-2).
