Rules Adopted: 125-015-0200

Subject: HB 2207 (2013 regular session) requires officers and employees paid under the state payroll system to receive payment of salary and wages through direct electronic deposit. The bill also requires itemized statements of deductions to be provided electronically. The bill provides some exceptions to these requirements, which must be set forth in rule. This rule provides the procedures for those exceptions. It also addresses the requirement for agencies to provide access to electronic statements for employees who do not have regular access to computers in their workplace.
