No I believe you can request any reasonable method of renumeration as long as it does not affect the core terms of your employment contract - i.e paid weekly, monthly,

 

having said that - if it states in your contract of employment that you will be paid direct to your bank account (which is about as specific as I think any employment contract might be) then they may have reasonable grounds for insisting that they pay you solely by direct remittance to your account - whether that be by account transfer or crossed cheque posted to your account or other. But no. I do not think they can dictate the method of payment as long as it is not jepoardizing the security of the payment (i.e they could argue that they cannot process cash payments, and they could not issue a cheque other in favour of the named employee for example).

 

Just my two pence.

Thanks... I thought the same, but I do recall reading somewhere in one of the many discussions about basic accounts that the law changed in the 80's and I can't find the thread and I certainly can't find any legislation... :confused:

well that may well be the case - though I am unaware of any such legislation - regardless, contract/employment law is a totally separate entity and certainly not subject to banking or financial precedent or restriction I would surmise.

The law changed (I think in 1986) to give the employer the right to choose how salaries were paid. Before that, the choice was the employees.
