No, you can't. The problem you have is that the bank is not responsible you having difficulties paying your bills, because you could (and as financial experts all say, *should*) have a reserve or cushion so that you can pay your bills for several weeks (at least) or months (ideally) despite any disruption or lateness or delay in your pay. The bank has not caused you to live "paycheck to paycheck" or be in a situation where a delay in processing your pay will cause you to be late on bills. Because they did not cause and do not control your overall financial situation, the law would not hold them liable for you having difficulty paying bills in this situation.
