NO. Massachusetts law says that hourly employees must be paid every week or every other week, and that you must be paid within 6 or 7 days of the pay period ending, depending on how many days an employee worked during one calendar week.

If you quit, you must be paid in full on the next regular payday. If your job has no regular payday, then you must be paid by the first Saturday after quitting. If you are laid off or fired, you must be paid in full on your last day of work.
