Question: Can my employer withhold my pay if I quit without notice?
The place to look for your answer is at the U.S. department of labor's website. It states the following:
Employers are not required by federal law to give former employees their final paycheck immediately. Some states, however, may require immediate payment. If the regular payday for the last pay period an employee worked has passed and the employee has not been paid, contact the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division or the state labor department.
The Department also has mechanisms in place for the recovery of back wages.
There is also a link to a number you can call for the Arizona state labor department if you have more specific questions about your wages.
