How does the law relate to employees covered under collective bargaining agreements, such as the CX (clerical) agreement, that provide for retroactive wage payments?

For example, if a campus is in the process of scheduling CX wage payments with future pay dates, is the campus required to calculate those payments and include them in the final paycheck provided to a terminating employee? Or can the employee’s current wages be paid through the date of separation and a separate check or checks be issued to the employee later for the CX payments?

If an employee is discharged or quits at a time when he or she is entitled to such increases, and the formula for the increases is known, then the employee should receive all monies due at the time of discharge or quit, as appropriate.
