Personnel: Do I Have to Pay an Employee Who Walks off the Job?

January 29, 2015

An employee walks off a jobsite with no explanation, no timesheet returned, nothing. Labor attorney Brooke Duncan gives some advice on what to do next.

“It would seem that this former employee has no interest in his final paycheck or he would have taken steps to see that he got paid – like taking the trouble to turn in his last time sheet,” Duncan writes. “If it’s practical to estimate his final pay, and the company has a mailing address for the employee, the conservative legal approach would be to send him a final paycheck based on that estimate (and send it via certified mail return receipt requested).”
