I just gave a home care agency my two weeks notice because they are completely understaffed and giving each nurse way to many patients at a time. They do not reimburse for mileage, and the pay is awful They immediately terminated my access to patient information(understandable) but I cannot process my notes now and they are giving me a hard time about paying me. I am per diem so I was paid per visit. They still owe me money for one shift and I’m getting the run around. Is this legal? It’s hard to find anything online about this.

File a complaint for wages owed with the Labor Board in person or online. In my state you can file the complaint online now.  If this does not result in your wages, seek a consultation with an employment attorney.

Not sure if you've already done this, but try to make sure to document (by email) your requests for payment by sending them emails requesting your wages.  At least this shows you have given them ample opportunity to rectify the situation.  You can even mention in the email, "I've attempted to contact Jane Doe of HR numerous times, but my calls have all been unreturned......"  etc..   This way you can present it to the Labor Board if you file a complaint.

Contact Labor and Industries. I had to do that once and they put some fire under their posteriors.

If you quit your job without notice in CA, the employer has 72 hours to give you your final paycheck.  If you give at least 72 hours notice, they must hand you your final paycheck as you leave.  Failure to meet these deadlines can result in a penalty per the Labor Board of one day pay for each day they miss the deadline up to a maximum of 30 days pay.  Other states might have similar laws.  You can find out when you file your complaint.
