  • Not Allowed to take Vacation after giving two-weeks Missouri

    I am an hourly employee and I had placed in a request for my 5 day vacation a few weeks back. It had been OK'd by my supervisor and everything was set. Well in teh meantime I have since found another job and given a written two-weeks notice. My vacation is supposed to start tomorrow and just today they are saying there will be consiquences if I take it, and that our handbook says this. Well I have gone through the handbook, and it does not! I have followed procedure and am still getting punished for it. I knew my compnay was shady (hence the reason for leaving) but this takes the cake. Can they do this?

    There isn't anything shady about whjat your employer is doing. Of all the companies I have worked for, not one would allow someone who has given their notice to take vacation. You are not getting punished for anything. It is up to the employer to decide when you take your vacation not you.

      No Vacation

      I would be curious to know what consequences there could be to an employee that is already leaving. What could they possibly do to you?

        If you fail to show up to work, they'll either take it as a NC/NS, or more likely they will accept your resignation early (either way, you don't get paid if you don't go to work).

        They do not have to allow you to use your vacation time through your two-week notice. I also have never heard of an employer doing so.

          Also, in Mo. the "earning" of vacation is treated as a contractual matter so whether you get the payout of your vacation on termination depends on the agreement between the parties.

          I know this wasn't your question but it's a just for your info.

          Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
