78% of US workers are living paycheck to paycheck. Timing of payroll can cause employees to struggle with making ends meet. Many resort to requesting a payroll advance or short-term loan, placing them in an uncomfortable situation. Learn how on-demand pay can empower your employees, and what unexpected results could benefit employers such as using it as a recruiting and differentiation tool, as immediate pay access is a benefit not all employers offer. Understand administrative and legal considerations that should be considered before implementing such a system for your company and employees.
