I worked for a small company with no HR department and no written vacation policy. I was entitled to 10 days a year and used only 7 of them before I put in my two weeks notice. Today was my last day of work and I was paid fairly for my most recent pay period, however I have heard before that California law requires employers to pay for earned vacation time not taken at the time of termination, regardless of whether the employee resigned or was fired.
According to calculations from the CA Labor Department website, I have earned 9 of my 10 given days by this point in the year. Am I entitled to two days of vacation pay based upon my calculated hourly rate, even though I was paid as a salaried employee?
Thanks for any help!
