I work for a division of a Fortune 100 company. They are implementing a new payroll frequency cycle. Currently exempt employees are paid every other Friday (26 pay periods/yr). The new cycle (starting 4/1/2000) will be once a month (12 pay periods/yr). They will now pay me on the last working day of the month for the month I worked. They will be paying hourly employees every other week (they were once a week). The positive for them is obviously the one time cash flow benefit, but they are taking it from their exempt employees. They also have my money for approx. 2 additional weeks. Is this legal? Is it right?
