I am planning on quitting my job. As of Jan 1 I am due 1 week vacation, so I would like to either get the time off or get paid for it before I leave. I already lost my vacation last year because of a personel shortage that prevented me from taking any time off before year end. My original plan was to take a week off and come back and give a 2 week notice. I mentioned to the boss this morning that I would like to take some time off soon. He made it clear that an entire week was out of the question.
Bottom line question is this, if I give a notice before taking vacation does he have to pay me for the vacation time?
I know this guy well enough to know that he will try to weasel out of paying if he doen't have to.
I've already worked a month longer than I intended because I'm trying to be the nice guy and not leave them without someone who can do my job.
