Once you've landed a new job, it’s important to speak with your employer about how you will be paid. Employees have a right to know about how their payroll works and how they will access their money.
Below is a checklist of essential questions to ask your employer when you’ve been hired.
- What are my payment options?
- How will I be paid?
- If a debit card payment system is required, will I not get the job if I refuse?
Some employees in Pennsylvania are being paid exclusively with payroll debit cards, which force employees to pay unfair fees to access their own money. Employers may be breaking the law if they solely offer payroll debit cards as payment.
