I.  Purpose

This policy is intended to maximize the utilization of electronic payments and to minimize the number of paper checks issued by the University, thereby obtaining efficiencies for the University and providing employees with a reliable and efficient manner of receiving their pay.

II.  Scope

This policy applies to all permanent, temporary, and student employees of the University.

III.  Policy

A.  Effective April 8, 2011, all employees paid by Banner payroll must receive payroll related payments by direct deposit. The employee may select the financial institution of his/her choice to accommodate the receipt of direct deposit payments.  An employee who does not have an account at an eligible financial institution may be exempted from this requirement upon providing evidence that he/she cannot obtain an account at an eligible financial institution.

B.  All employees employed prior to April 1, 2011 who are receiving their pay by paper warrant (check) shall be required to enroll in the direct deposit feature by completing the appropriate
enrollment form.  The deadline for enrolling is April 8, 2011.

C.  In circumstances where, due to payroll cycles, it is appropriate for an employee to receive a check directly, UNCSA will mail the check on the employee’s designated payday to the employee’s permanent mailing address on file.  No paper checks shall be mailed prior to the designated payday.

D.  The University may stop a final paycheck direct deposit if the University reasonably believes that the employee owes money to the University and/or the State of North Carolina.  If applicable, the employee will be paid by paper check so the check can be held until all debt is resolved satisfactorily by the University Administration.
