  • where's my paycheck?

    I live in pa. At my work they have now told us that we can either choose direct deposit or they are deposting your check in an account in a PNC bank and giving you a "debit/credit card" type thing,that you have to pay to use.Can they tell you ,we are taking your PAYCHECK,you cant have it,it is being deposited somewhere we choose,and after the first withdraw on it ,you must pay to use it,plus pay the bank any fees they charge.How can they be able to take the money you earned and tell you what you have to do with it?Please help me out with this one.

    Mandatory direct deposit is not allowed in Pennsylvania (nor most other states). The use of paycards, however, is a relatively new option and most states' laws have not caught up with it yet. Contact the PA Dept. of Labor and ask them. And, if you don't mind, please post back what they say.

      I am still waiting to hear from the dept. of labor,but in the meantime,wouldn't the paycard be forced direct deposit? I mean they are giving a choice of ,you get direct deposit in the bank you choose,or we will deposit your money in a bank that WE choose.When it comes down to it you are being forced to direct deposit SOMEWHERE ,i mean, they won't give you your paycheck outright,it has to go somewhere other than directly into your hands.

        That's what I'm saying; most states have not made that decision yet. Call them again.
