  • Oregon Final check question

    I am sorry I had to post this to confirm what I think I have read, Employers firing an employee do NOT have to pay for accumulated time off or vacation time accrued?

    My wife knows its coming and is thinking about giving her notice but from her past experience working there its meant certain dismissal that day .

    In Oregon there is no statute requiring the payout of earned but unused vacation time at termination; however, courts have interpreted unused vacation time as wages that are payable.
    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.

        So what's the question? If it's another opinion you're looking for, I agree with cbg. And I've managed the payroll function for several large national companies.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

          Patty do you really not understand my question?

          what I think I have read, Employers firing an employee do NOT have to pay for accumulated time off or vacation time accrued?

          I agree with you both regardless

            As I said, there is no law in Oregon saying that vacation pay has to be paid out at termination.

            There have been court cases where the court has determined that such time is considered wages and has to be paid.

            I don't know what more can be said on the subject.
