Can an employer in New York state withhold a final paycheck for not completing an exit interview?

Left my job over two weeks ago and still have not received my check because I would not do an exit interview.

No. You will be paid. If not, tell your former employer that unless you receive your final check by x date you will contact the New York State Department of Labor. You can also take your former employer to small claims court but I would try the other options first.
