Can an employer pay its employees late if they are shut down or operating at reduced capacity due to COVID-19 or the Stay Home, Stay Safe Order?

Employees who have performed compensable work must be paid in accordance with the employer’s regular pay schedule. An employer cannot withhold pay that is due without the written authorization of the employee. If you believe your compensation has been unlawfully withheld, you may file a complaint with the Bureau of Employment Relations' Wage and Hour Division. Wage compensation can be filed online.
