Can my employer mandate direct deposit ? And if so can I charge me a fee and deducted from my paycheck?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Employers are required to pay you for time worked. They can request and potentially terminate you if you do not want direct deposit.
Whether an employer can charge a fee on your paycheck depends on (1) whether it drops you below minimum wage/overtime if you are hourly, (2) how much the fee is, (3) the reason for the fee, and (4) whether that conflicts with a prior written contract, among other things. You should speak with an attorney about the details, such as the amount of the fee and your employment status. That will allow you to get the specific advice you need.
