Meaning & Definition

Earned wage access (EWA)

EWA allows employees to access a portion of their net pay before the scheduled payday. Employers offer this through dedicated apps linked to their payroll systems. HR admins can deduct from employees’ wages and automate transfers to their bank accounts.
