    Payday Period Ends On Thursdays With Pay Being Friday. The Company Uses Direct Deposit Only. My Problem Is If You Do Not Bank Where The Company Does, You Do Not Get Your Deposit At Your Bank Until The Following Tuesday. Is This Within The Laws Of Texas? Thank You

    There is no way to get paid by direct deposit the same day that payroll is processed. I would think that payment could be in the account on Mondays except when Monday is a holiday (That is the way we do it for our temps with pay periods ending on Thursday).

    The way you are being paid by the company is legal. Frankly, them paying employees the day after the end of the pay period is the best that they could do without paying "current" (like paying you on Thursday even though the company does not really know how many hours you will be working that day).

      I agree with ScottB. It's also very possible that the employer's bank is doing "on us" deposits, where the direct deposit records do NOT go through the Automated Clearing House, but get posted directly to the accounts of the holders. When I worked for a large nationwide bank many years ago, this is how our direct deposit worked.

      In Texas, even a Tuesday payday is legal for the pay period ending on the previous Thursday.

        Thank You All For The Posts And Answers. I Too, Am A Retired Banker Of 38 Years, Guess The Difference Is Local Clearing House For Same Day Processing. Have A Great Week

          For future reference, please do not capitalize each word; it makes your post hard to read.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
