  • Unused Vacation in CA

    I work for a corporation in CA. Do I get paid for the amount of unused vacation time Ihave accrued?

    In California, vacation pay is another form of wages which vests as it is earned (in this context, "vests" means you are invested or endowed with rights in the wages). Accordingly, a policy that provides for the forfeiture of vacation pay that is not used by a specified date ("use it or lose it") is an illegal policy under California law and will not be recognized by the Labor Commissioner of California.

      Actually, what I should have asked was, do I get paid for unused vacation time I have accrued when I submit my resignation?

        Yes under California law any accrued, unused vacation is considered wages.
