PTO Payout

For Atlanta, GA employees are we supposed to payout the PTO balance in the last payroll of the terminated employee or can we wait for another payroll?

Employers in Georgia are not required to provide PTO benefits to their employees or payout unused PTO accruals upon separation of employment. Doing so is a matter of company policy/past practice or employment agreement. When an employer does provide for the payout of unused PTO accruals, it must do in the manner set forth under its own policy or established practice. Basically, if it’s your policy or past practice to payout the PTO balance in the employee’s last paycheck then you should continue to do so. Or, amend your policy to state that such payouts will be received within two pay periods or something similar.
