  • PTO payout when employee quits Colorado

    Is an employee entitled to a PTO payout if they voluntarily terminate without a 2 week notice? Is there anything under the CO state law that requires that?

  • #2
    See here, under "definition of wages"
    http://www.coworkforce.com/lab/WageActFactSheet.pdf

    What does the company policy say? Does it provide for forfeiture of PTO payout at termination if the requested notice is not given?
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      It says:
      Employees who voluntarily terminate their employment without giving two (2) weeks notice may forfeit their PTO accruals, depending upon state law.

      So I just wanted to see if anyone knows if CO state law requires PTO payout?
      Thanks for your help

        My understanding is that Colorado requires payout of unused, accrued vacation time.
        I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

          OP, I'd call the DOL and ask them, since theirs is the only opinion that matters anyway. It's possible that the policy which allows for forfeiture under certain circumstances is allowable under CO law.

            Colorado - accrued & unused vacation days are considered wages under the Wage Claim Act & are due & payable on separation from employment.
            CRS code 8-4-101(8)

            OP - however, I agree that in your case you might want to call the Co. DOL & verify.
