The Board of Education may determine to have the net pay of all school district employees directly deposited in a specific banking institution in a checking account, savings account, or share account designated in writing by the employee in accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 52:14-15h.
If the Board approves a direct deposit program, compliance by an employee shall be mandatory. However, the Board may grant an exemption from the mandatory requirements of N.J.S.A. 52:14-15h on such terms and conditions as the Board deems necessary. The Board may grant an exemption for seasonal and temporary employees as the Board deems necessary.
The Board shall make available for those employees required to have their net pay direct deposited in accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 52:14-15h, all information concerning net pay, any accompanying information approved for distribution with net pay, and W-2 forms in accordance with applicable Federal law, only on the Internet with restricted access and policies and procedures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of the information. The Board will continue to complete the payroll check distribution verification process as required in N.J.A.C. 6A:23A-5.7 and Policy 6510.
In the event the Board of Education determines to implement a mandatory direct deposit program in accordance with N.J.S.A. 52:14-15h, the Board shall annually adopt a resolution to implement the direct deposit requirements of N.J.S.A. 52:14-15h. The Board approved resolution shall designate the school district’s banking institution that shall be used to implement the direct deposit program and shall indicate any employee group or category that are exempt from the Board’s direct deposit requirements.
