Every other week my company pays its employees. At that time we must print a pay stub and give to them. This adds about an hour to our time processing our pay and upto $0.75 per employee. I'd say 50-75% of them never look at it and it goes directly into the trash can.
Are they allowed to opt out from recieving them? No! I don't look at mine, and if I did want it I would just look at it on the cloud or ask to see the newest one.
Employees should be allowed to opt out of receving the paystub. So much wasted time, I can't imagine the cost to a large company. I'd estimate we spend $100 a month on it. To a small business - those numbers add up quick.
