  • Leaving job after 9 years in IL.

    I am planning on leaving my job of 9 years in Il. and I was wondering if they have to pay me the two weeks of vacation I just received at the start of this new year . I did not receive any vacation time until after my first year of service if that makes a difference.

    ?

    It 's a small company that doesn't really have a handbook or set guidlines.

      It depends on how they accrue vacation. They have no obligation to pay you for vacation you have not accrued yet. The fact that they allow it to be used does not mean it's accrued - many employers (too many, in my opinion) allow employees to "borrow" vacation that they haven't actually accrued yet.
      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.

        Could you have borrowed against the vacation you received at the end of your first year? If so, you may have been accruing it all long. You will need to talk to your employer, though, I'm just making an educated guess.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

          They will not let you use it until after the new year. I get two weeks every year to use for that year. Didn't get 2 weeks until 2 years of service completed. Don't know if that helps.

            Nope, it doesn't. It's entirely on their method of accural, not on when they allow what amount.
