I was terminated, I was a salary employee, and I worked 4 days after the pay period, the pay period was every 2 weeks.

Can I be paid for a total two weeks, or just the 4 days leading up to my termination?

You are only entitled to be paid for the time (or days) you actually worked and not the whole pay period.

I'm afraid you can only be paid for the four days that you actually worked.

I agree with Mr. Angel and Mr. Eldreth, unless your company policy says that you are entitled to the full paycheck, which is very unlikely, you will be paid for time worked.
