  • Vacation roll-over limits in Illinois

    Are there any laws in Illinois that regulate vacation accrual limits and/or roll-over policies? If so, I would appreciate a reference to the regulation.

    The situation is that my company put out a memo that the vacation roll-over limit is being reduced from 120 hours to 40 hours, starting in 2010, unless prohibited by state law.

    There is nothing to show you, because there is no law that addresses this particular situation.

    This is plenty of time, I would think, for the employees to use the excess before the end of the year.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Employers in Il. may cap vacation or require employees to use it by a certain date provided a reasonable opportunity to use it is given.

        Thanks. I agree it is plenty of notice. One of my co workers was planning on rolling over more than 40hrs for his honeymoon next year (and passed up some free plane tickets recently because of this plan), which is part of the reason I was looking into the issue.
