Am I required to have a debit card?

A business company has given us a lot of benefits, to me that satisfies my needs and most of them were not even on my plan. Now my company is requiring us to have a debit card as a part of the benefits of the company. I want to know if it is legal to require the employees to have one. I am not used to those things.

    In the latest way of paying the workers of a company is usally by a bank. Most businesses or companies have partnered already with banks so they can deposit the salaries that their employees need. Those major companies provides you the debit card that you can use anytime. But it depends on the company that you are working for. Some small companies give the salary the old fashion way.

    CIMB FastSaver-i Account / CIMB Bank Berhad Singapore Branch

    Good account with pretty good interest without having to worry about minimum spend or other transactions. However, since they encourage account holders to go cardless, to get a card you may need to pay for it. I find that the user interface for the mobile and online banking is rather lacklustre as logging in seems to be a huge problem for the app.
