  • Vacation pay put in before notice

    I had 3 days vacation pay. I used 2 days and then a few days later I put in my 2 week notice. After I have recieved my check with my 2 days vacation pay our payroll person came up to me upset because she said she was told I should have not gotten them and she was going to pay it back out of her pocket. I said no. My boss said that I should have not had vacation pay on my check but last year I had it and this year I had it. Is that fair? I told her (out payroll lady) to cut me a new check because I didn't want her to pay for it. If I had it on my check and put in my 2 days vacation before I quit, can it be taken away?

    What state are you in? It makes a difference to the answer.
    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.

          Not unless the company policy specifically stated so. See the Q & A on page 3 here:

          I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.
