Can you choose when and how often to pay employees?

What are the Pay-Date Rules for Indiana?

Frequency of Wage Payments

An employer must pay employees their wages no less frequently than twice per month.

However, salaried employees do not need to be paid at least twice per month, but they can request to be paid at least every two weeks.

An employer must pay all wages earned within 10 days of the end of a pay period.

Manner of Wage Payments

An employer may pay wages by:

  • cash,

  • check, redeemable upon demand at a bank or other financial institution readily available to the employee

  • direct deposit into an account at a financial institution designated by the employee.

Direct Deposit

An employer may pay wages by direct deposit, so long as the employee designates the financial institution with which the wages are deposited. In Indiana, an employer can require an employee to receive payment of wages by direct deposit.

Statement of Wages (Pay Stub)

For each pay period, an employer must provide each employee a statement of the hours worked by the employee and the wages paid to him listing tax deductions made. Indiana Code 22-2-2-8
