  • Louisiana - Forced Direct Deposit or No Pay?

    We received this notice:

    [...] "The last paper checks will be issued on 6-30-05. If you don't have a checking account, you have 2 weeks to get one. Most banks offer free checking. If I don't have your account information by the end of June, you will not be able to get paid in July until I get that info."

    Is it ok for my employer to force this payment method on me?

    Forced Direct Deposits

    Some states prohibit mandatory direct deposit. Louisiana is not one of them. It is unfortunate because some employees are not able to get checking accounts without incurring considerable costs (if they can obtain one at all).

        Mandatory Direct Deposit

        Does anyone know where I can find a list of states that do allow employers to make direct deposit mandatory for payroll?

            Can anyone tell me if in the state of South Carolina, an employer can REQUIRE you fet direct deposit, or risk being fired?

              First off, Mel, post your question ONCE. Do not spam it all over the board.

              I read the link you posted as saying mandatory direct deposit IS permitted, although I agree it is not clear. You are free to call the state DOL for clarification.
              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.

                Direct Deposit

                I didnt realized I was all over the board...this is my first time ever on here, and I thought I was in separate areas.

                I have been doing research all day and found with my agency has been sued in the passed for not giving the employee the details of the employment before hiring. So, I think I have a strong caes here. If not for demanding Direct Deposit, then for NOT TELLING ME BEFORE I STARTED.

                  The same people reply to all the employment law forums. Posting the same question more than once will not provide you with more or different answers, and is a waste of both your time and ours.

                    If I had known that, then I wouldn't have posted more than once.
