  • Restrictions on use of Paid Time Off North Carolina

    I am a salaried employee with my company. You gain a week's worth of PTO after your first full year of employment. I have been there almost four years now. I'm not sure if this will have any bearing, but our PTO is based on an accrual system. You gain a set number of PTO hours per pay period added to your time bank.

    We are no longer allowed to go past a -40 hours in our accrual process. It's an annual "use 'em or lose 'em" policy. You cannot roll any of your leftover time over to the next year and you will not be paid for them if you don't use them.

    Would someone share with me where does that stand legally please?

    In your state, as long as that policy is in writing and the employees are given notice of it, it is perfectly legal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Thanks. It sucks, but thanks.
