West Virginia Amends Direct Deposit, Paycard Requirements

BY: Lia Coniglio, Esq. | 04/07/22

Effective June 9, 2022, the requirements in West Virginia related to paying employee wages by direct deposit and paycards will change. Additional disclosures to employees will be required for paying employee wages via paycard—but written consent will no longer be needed for payment via paycard or direct deposit [S.B. 245, L. 2022].

If an employee does not identify the information necessary to enable payment via direct deposit (e.g., the identification of the employee’s financial institution, the type of account, and the account number), the employer may pay the employee via paycard.
