I have a job where I am paid a salary and it's split into 2 even payments every 2 weeks. I've been paid my same salary amount for the last 15 months.
I plan on quitting next month and giving my notice on 17 July 2017 and my last day will be 31 July 2017 since that's 14 days later. Our pay periods are 1st-15th and 16th-end if month. I figure since I will be giving my notice during the pay period where I would have already worked at least a few hours my employer will legally have to pay me for the entire pay period. Is this correct?
My boss is the type of person who would have asked me to leave earlier if I gave a longer notice which is why I'm only giving a 2 week notice. I just want to make sure I should be expecting my last check since I need it for rent etc.
I live in California.
