Is it illegal to not be getting paid on time?

My company gets paid through direct deposit. Is it illegal for us not to be getting paid on time?
For example, my boss has his accountant send out everyone's pay-stub via email. The pay-stub is up until September 15. It is now September 21 and there is still no money in my bank account. This has happened numerous times and I just wanted to know if this is even legal

Most states in the US have a state labor department but the rules aren't the same in every state. Contact your state's labor department or comment below this answer the state you're in and we will try to locate it. Don't include personal info, just the state.

I just tried and couldn't get any of California Labor links to work. Their web site mey be down right now.

Division of Labor Standards Enforcement - California Department of Labor:
