What Is Wage Advance?
Wage advance, or earned wage access, is a new and growing employee benefit category. It allows employees to access wages they’ve already worked for but that haven’t been paid out yet — without the employer needing to front the capital.
With WorkSync, it doesn’t require any changes to employer payroll; all funds are advanced and collected by Clair, a third-party provider.
How It Works
WorkSync Wallet is easy to use and fits right into your existing processes. The service is free for employers and doesn’t charge employees for wage advances.
Employees simply switch their direct deposit account to Clair.
Clair offers free wage advances to employees at the end of each shift.
Requested advances are transferred to the Clair account and can be used immediately with a Clair Debit Mastercard®.
Advances are deducted once employees receive their paycheck.
Benefits for Employees

The digital bank account and debit card are a crucial help to unbanked or underbanked employees.
