  • PTO usage New York Nebraska

    Concerning PTO, in Nebraska is an employer allowed to force you to "use it or lose it?" I always thought that once you "earned" PTO it was yours and was paid to you entirely when you left (Either quit or were fired).

    Nebraska - Vacation pay fully accrued & earned constitutes earned wages which may not be forfeited under the Nebraska Wage Payments and Collections Act. It thus must be paid out upon termination. Paid leave, other than earned but unused vacation leave, is not required to be paid out at the time of separation unless the employer and employee, or the employer & a collective bargaining representative, have specifically agreed otherwise.

    Use it or Lose it - No Ne. laws prohibit such policies, and "use it or lose it" policies are simply a cap on the amount of benefit which may be accrued.

    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
