  • Vacation Time Florida

    My employment status recently changed to FT allotting me VACATION TIME!!! For the first year my employer pays 4 hours/per month, however at the end of the year my company basically adopted the "use it or lose it" method. During the months or Nov/Dec the company doesn't allow vacation time off because of business needs. Will I lose 8 hours of vacation time for those two months because the time doesn't "roll-over" to the next year?

    EDIT: Seems Florida is a PRO employer state based on my readings. MEH! :P Catch 22x9000!!!

    We don't know what WILL happen - the crystal ball is out being recalibrated. But since Florida (and Florida is not the only state where this can happen by a long shot) permits use it or lose it policies, it CAN be that you will lose the time, yes.
    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.

      I agree with cbg.

        Thanks for the replies.

        I guess the better question would of been can you use vacation time before its accrued which can be answered by my employer.

          Given that the employer is busy during year-end, is there any possibility that the vacation time does not expire at December 31st? Some companies have an expiration date that does not automatically correspond to year end or may have it on a rolling 365 days.

          That or other accommodations that management might allow are worth looking into. But, as has been stated, if they do not then the policy of the time expiring is completely legal.

            When you can and cannot use vacation time is entirely up to your employer. In any state. No state has a law that allows an employee to take vacation at a time when his employer does not wish him to.

              Agree, they don't even have to offer vacation unless it's in a binding employment
              contract or CBA.

                I have an answer. Thanks~ My employer allows employees to use vacation time before it's accrued. If we separated from the company then we'll just have to pay it back. Thanks again~
