FedEx Express recently experienced substantial disruptions at the Memphis and Indianapolis hubs due to severe winter weather that has been moving across the United States. While FedEx is working to minimize disruptions and shipment delays, it is important to consider how these delays will impact your business operations and especially your employees who receive paper checks.

AlphaStaff is here for you with solutions to help encourage your employees to move beyond a paper check.

Direct Deposit

If an employee has a bank account, they can sign up for direct deposit through the employee self-service portal and should do so as soon as possible.

By enrolling in direct deposit, funds are transferred electronically into a bank account, eliminating the need for a physical check. The employee self-service portal provides a list of the payments and even a PDF copy of the paystub for record-keeping.



Paycards are a good option for employees who do not have a bank account.  AlphaStaff has partnered with vendors to offer this easy-to-use alternative to traditional banking and paper checks. Through this option, payroll funds are deposited into a debit card, and a personal or checking bank account is not needed. If you are interested in paycards for your employees, please reach out to your Payroll Specialist for information.

We strongly suggest that clients who have employees who receive paper checks consider alternative payroll delivery methods. If you have any questions,  please do not hesitate to contact us.
