I am a hourly paid public school employee. Our pay checks are paid out one month after the pay period. I was given a 2 week suspension and filed a grievance over it. The district decided to put the suspension in my record but not have me serve it. However they said that if I do anything wrong, they will likely fire me and dock my final pay 2 weeks of the vacation that I would have been paid. If there isn't any vacation to pay out they will take 2 weeks of my regular pay. This would be hours that I have already worked. Is this legal?
our contract says that we are to be paid out any left over vacation after terminating employment for any reason. I am also a union steward and believe that I have been targeted for being very outspoken for employee's rights. I also believe that the union has looked the other way on many retaliations against me because of the good rapport they want to have with management.
