AL, GA, HI, LA, MA, MS, NE, and OHNine states will allow a company to mandate direct deposit.However, those states make an exception in cases where an employee doesn’t have a bank account.For those workers, businesses in these nine states must allow unbanked employees to receive pay in cash, check, or with a payroll card.If an employer in one of these states can compel its unbanked employees to sign up for accounts in a way that still comports with laws (by making it voluntary), then it can increase the uptake of direct deposit.
Even businesses operating in states with no rules relating to direct deposit still have to follow federal law.
A caveat to the information in this article is that employees of government agencies frequently receive different treatment under state and federal law.

It is acceptable to encourage workers to sign up for direct deposit in any state.
