No last Paycheck until exit interview

My employer refuses to give me my last paycheck until I do an exit interview. This can only be done Mon-Fri from 8am -4pm. The problem is I work Mon-Fri 8am-5pm. I live in ga where there is no laws established on last pay. Are there any federal laws that could get me my last check. Usually I would pick my check up at the nurses station at any time after 2pm on thursdays, but now they have it locked up in the busineess office.Please help. Thanks alot!

Last Paycheck

Your employer is not standing on any valid legal grounds. Even in Georgia, you would have the right to get that paycheck, and possibly even attorney fees. However, you need to determine whether in your circumstances a legal action would cost you a good recommendation in the future. If so, handle it cooperatively. In any event, a single letter from an attorney will get you your paycheck very quickly. They have no right to hold it up.
