40-165.3.

    A.  Whenever an employee's employment terminates, the employer
shall pay the employee's wages in full, less offsets, at the next
regular designated payday established for the pay period in which the
work was performed either through the regular pay channels or by
certified mail postmarked within the deadlines herein specified if
requested by the employee, unless provided otherwise by a collective
bargaining agreement that covers the employee. 
    B.  If an employer fails to pay an employee wages as required
under subsection A of this section, such employer shall be
additionally liable to the employee for liquidated damages in the
amount of two percent (2%) of the unpaid wages for each day upon
which such failure shall continue after the day upon which payment is
required; or in an amount equal to the unpaid wages, whichever is
smaller; provided, however, that for the purpose of such liquidated
damages such failure shall not be deemed to continue after the date
of the filing of a petition in bankruptcy with respect to the
employer if he thereafter shall have been adjudicated bankrupt upon
such petition.
