Paying Terminated Employees in Iowa

Filed under Office & HR.

Employers in Iowa must comply with these state requirements when making the final wage payment to terminated employees.

In Iowa, when an employee quits or is fired, the employee must be paid no later than the next regularly scheduled payday for the pay period in which the wages were earned.

However, if any of the wages due represent the difference between a credit paid against wages determined on a commission basis and the wages actually earned on a commission basis, the employer must pay the difference not more than 30 days after the date of suspension or termination.
