Just started with new company on 10th of February 2020! My first Settlement says 777.20 Gross and Net 628.19 Mine bank shows 588.00 deposited

I called payroll the lady says pay is correct ok but why is my Direct Deposit 40.00 short from my Net pay ? Even if I owed the bank money they would show the 628.19 as deposited right and the balance would be different! She told me at first it's because of per diem ? Then that she is not responsible for taxes but net comes after all deductions, Shouldn't the net pay be the same as the amount deposited?

Per Diem:

Getting paid per diem means getting a portion of your salary paid to you without taxes taken out. It's technically classified as a meal and expense reimbursement.

Truck drivers and others who travel for a living get large tax deductions for meal expenses. The Government set up per diem pay as a way to reimburse some of the taxes you pay with each paycheck instead of making you wait until tax filing season.

Getting per diem pay means a driver will get a larger paycheck each week but a smaller tax return at tax time.

We have a ton of information on our wiki page on per diem pay

Man, I would think so. Currently looking at my hubby's pay stub for this week, and the net sure does match the auto deposit. Always does. Sounds like it's on your company end, not the bank. If you 'did' owe the bank money for a prior overdraft or whatnot, it would be a separate line item on your bank statement.

Can you post a copy of your settlement from your company; maybe one of the veterans/moderators here, will see something you don't and my green self might not know about? I'd be questioning that, too.

Be safe~!

Did the company withhold the $40 for something else, such as chains, locks, miscellaneous gear, pet deposit, rider insurance, etc.?

That was going to be my question on locks, chains a d misc stuff. But still should have been itimized for deposit. At least that's the way Swift did it. I would be asking more questions.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

You dont by chance have your check going into separate accounts do you? Maybe $40 going into a savings account every paycheck?

It says expense reimbursement 45.99. Would be nice if they told you what it was. Maybe just me but I find that statement hard to read.
