(AP) A McDonald's franchise in Pennsylvania says it will give employees more payment options after it was sued by a former employee who says she was charged a fee to access her wages from a debit card.


Company spokeswoman Christina Mueller-Curran says employees of 16 McDonald's restaurants in northeastern Pennsylvania will be given the option of getting paid via direct deposit or paper check.


Former employee Natalie Gunshannon alleges she was charged $1.50 to withdraw cash. Her lawsuit has focused attention on the practice of paying low-wage employees via debit cards that can be laden with fees.


Mueller-Curran says the debit card used by franchise owners Albert and Carol Mueller includes free withdrawals. She says the company has always tried to treat its employees fairly.
