The Fair Labor Standards Act doesn’t require employers to pay employees on a certain day or within a certain time limit, but many states do.
Some states require that employees be paid no less often that twice a month or once every two weeks.
Some other states require employees to be paid within a certain date of performing the work for which they are being compensated. For example, California employees are entitled to be paid by the 26th of the month for wages earned between the 1st and the 15th of the month, and by the 10th of the month for wages earned between the 16th and the end of the previous month.
