You’re probably familiar with what your regular pay cycles are supposed to be. If your employer is consistently late on paying you or on the money being in the account when you go to cash those pay checks then you should be asking the question of whether you’re entitled to some compensation for that. This is something that happens fairly frequently and something that you should ask the question about.
Pragmatically speaking if this is something that doesn’t happen that often, it’s only a couple of days late and is fixed in fairly short order it may not even be worth your while and your time and effort to do something about it.
However, if this is something that continues to happen, you don’t know if you’re going to be able to pay your bills because you don’t know if that paycheck is going to be there or if when you go to cash it that the money is going to be in their account for you to be able to redeem it, then you should talk to somebody to see if you’re entitled to some compensation for that late payment.
The law does require you to be paid on your paydays basically and state law even has specific requirements for how frequently you’re supposed to be paid. There are some damages available for late payments when certain criteria are met so it’s worth the question being asked to see if you’re entitled to that compensation.
