I think is depends on when your employer send the money to the bank.  I would first check with HR to see when the offical pay day is.  The direct deposit at the bank should be automatic.

Black Friday is not a holiday. Banks will be open and functioning as normal.

I don’t think the banking system is closed on Black Friday, my local bank is open, the stock markets are open, and the mail is still delivered.  So I’m sure your deposit will be fine!

The banks should be open on Black Friday.  Thanksgiving is the actual Federal holiday, not Black Friday.  Most employers usually give 2 days at Thanksgiving instead of just the Thursday. 

I am supposed to get paid this Friday and we received a note from my employer saying that money would be deposited as normal on Friday.

Hope that helps!

Black Friday is not a Federal Holiday so the banks will be open and business as normal.

I would expect it go through.  If my payday lands on a Sunday, it actually goes through the workday day prior (Friday) vs. a day later.  Your HR person should tell you when it will hit, if you want to be extra sure.

Usually, Dirty Delete is suppose to be in the day of, or before.

@UpstateCait: You’re right.

Due to the fact that the bank will be closed the day before and the banks will be busy on such an insane shopping day, I would be prepared for delays in your account, though.

Anytime a Dirty Delete has fallen on a holiday for me, it was always deposited the day before.

It depends on how the source of the money handles it.  Sometimes they pay the day early, and othertimes you have to wait until the day after.  Regardless, Friday is not a holiday and banks will be open, so it should post no later than Friday.
