In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Paychex, a provider of human resources, payroll, benefits and insurance solutions, and PayActiv, a provider of employer-sponsored earned wage and tip access, have aligned to provide business owners and employees relief.

Through an existing partnership with PayActiv, the Paychex Pay-on-Demand product gives employees access to an amount equal to their net pay via PayActiv's mobile application. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, PayActiv is offering $250 to Paychex customers who enroll in the Pay-on-Demand service, payable when the first employee leverages the solution. In addition, PayActiv is waiving employee transaction fees.
