Pay after I've quit my job?

I started a new job a few weeks ago and ended up quitting last Saturday.

The pay date for that employer was the 30th of each month. They paid me for the 2 weeks I worked and I worked another week before quitting at the end of that week.

So, they owe me a weeks pay. I understand I have to wait until they pay everyone on the usual date, which will be the 30th of July now.

I didn't sign any contract but just filled out the new starter forms and the HMRC form so I am "On the books".

Could they turn around and not pay me and just say I worked 2 weeks and they paid me for it? The only proof I've got on the day I quit was an email I sent saying I have resigned with immediate effect.

Thanks in advance.

    They will pay you....

    In most states - the employer has 72-hours to provide a last pay check for you.

    Of course they can do that but it is very unlikely that they will. What makes you distrust them so?

    They will pay you on the next pay day, stop looking for "just in case" problems

    When you get your final check in the US depends on your state. Most are the normai payday. And non-US places have their own laws. But you shouldn't have trouble getting paid - good luck.

    I suppose they could but you will have to wait and see.
