How long does your employer have to give you your last pay check after you quit?

Question Details:

I recently quit my job and my employer has stated that I had to wait until the next normal payday to receive my check. This date is 9 days after the day I quit. Is this legal and is there any statute governing a time limit on a last check in NV? I was under no contract. Also, does your employer have to honor the last rate of hourly pay on your last pay stub? Since I was not a contract employee, I am worried my employer will downgrade my hourly. I'm hoping that's illegal.
