How Frequently Must South Carolina Employers Pay Employees?
In South Carolina, there are no regulations specifying mandatory paydays. However, employers with 5 or more employees are required to give written notice at the time of hiring to all employees advising them of their wages agreed upon, and the time and place of payment along with their expected hours of work. The employer must pay on the normal time and at the place of payment established by the employer.
Other Payday Laws
In addition to regulating payday frequency, South Carolina has other labor laws regulating things such as payroll wage garnishment, payment methods (suh as check and direct deposit), vacation pay, and final payroll following termination.
