We are a California company trying to give people an incentive to use direct deposit. One of the managers came up with the idea of depositing funds 2 days earlier for direct deposit than those with paper checks. i.e. DD funds will be available March 28 (the paper stubs will state that the dd funds will be deposited March 31), while paper checks will be dated and available to cash on March 31. Is this considered discriminating to non DD employees? Is this legal or illegal? Any help or reference would be appreciated. Thank you.
