Is my boss required to pay anytime I worked before I quit (not including 2-week notice time)?

He told me that he does not have to pay me the 2 weeks before this week if I plan to quit today. Is this legal?

On my last day, do I get my final paycheck with everything that he owes me or do I have to wait and get paid on his assigned paydays (His assigned paydays: You work one week and that week is paid after 2 exact weeks)?

I am a waitress and do not have a wage per hour, I'm ONLY paid by tips. I hardly make $30 per day. In rare cases I make $40 per day ONLY by tips. Is this also legal?

The employer is required to pay you for all the time you worked, right up to the very last minute. You mention that you are not paid an hourly rate at all. If this is the case, the employer has violated both State and federal wage laws. You should seek out counsel of your choosing to discuss this. You could be entitled to a financial recovery. Best of luck and hope this helps.
