When is a last paycheck due?

I worked for a company for a little over a month and was terminated. I was let go last Monday and I asked via email when I would get my final paycheck. I was told the next payperiod, which ws 10 days later. Don’t they have to pay me within 3 business days?

Yes, under Arizona law, if you are terminated, the employer must pay you within three business days or at the end of the pay period, whichever is sooner.
