  • Previous employer's access to my bank account (Direct Deposit) Florida

    I worked for a company for a few months, and I signed all of the direct deposit forms. When I resigned at the end of October, they deposited and withdrew money a couple of times, until we were all square on pay, and back-pay. Here's my dilemma now:
    Recently, thanks to an incompetent payroll department, they have been depositing money into my bank account and withdrawing it again. I haven't worked for this company in over 2 months!
    I spoke to my bank about blocking their access to my bank account, but they said they can do nothing.
    How long after ending employment with a company are they still allowed access to a bank account? Also, can I call them up and tell them that they no longer have access?

    You can do that, but you might be better off opening a new account and putting all your money in that one (except for whatever you need to leave in to cover checks that have not yet cleared). Once your checks have cleared from the old account, close it.

      Or, at least send a letter that you are revoking your direct deposit authorization effective immediately. Best payroll practice is to do that for terminations immediately, but some companies don't.

        Correct - and do it in WRITING - call is optional, but make it in writing.
        Any advice provided does not create an attorney-client relationship. This is a public forum and therefore no confidentiality is assured. Attorney Joel Grist does not enter into an attorney-client relationship without a written representation agreement.
