I don't think we have a "first check held" policy here. One to three months notice prior resignation is a common thing though!

Oof. In the US, two weeks is customary. However, in the technology field, it's not unusual to find that, the day you submit your resignation is the day they walk you out the door. This is especially so if you have privileged access to anything.

The whole basis for "notice" is the idea that you're doing them the courtesy of letting them hire someone in before you leave (so as to reduce the impact of that departure). That said, given the timetables behind finding suitable replacements (and the prior not about treatment of personnel with privileged access), that custom is starting to fade in some places.

But they never paid me my last salary. So, that's a pretty common thing (I hope it doesn't happen this time)!

Oof... In the US, an employer doing that with anything approaching regularity would set them up for a non-trivial penalty via litigative loss.
