When employment is terminated, when must the employee receive his or her 401(k) contribution or profit-sharing?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not cover 401(k), profit-sharing or other retirement/benefit programs. The Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) may be able to answer questions regarding these benefits.
