Does my employer have to notify me in advance if he changes the time that paychecks are posted?

I have worked at a company for over 3 years. When I started, I was told that payday was every Friday at noon. About a year ago, paychecks weren’t posted until 3 pm. Last Friday, I was informed at 230 that I would not receive my paycheck until after 500.
