As I understood it, the final paycheck is held back/sent by email for
several reasons.

1: Payroll can verify the stop electronic payment command has gone through
properly (I've heard of it not).
2: Management can verify all company resources were returned intact (i.e.,
you didn't take a sledge hammer to your computer).
3: The final paycheck is paper so it requires your signature on the back and
they can throw in legalese that explains that you are accepting it as your
final paycheck.
