According to some experts, this is a way for employers to discriminate on the basis of age without really admitting what they're doing.

When should you get your final paycheck?

When leaving a job, you have a right to a final paycheck for the hours that you worked. If you're leaving the middle of a pay period, that could be just a few days.
