I have a quick question. Does anyone know if you give your notice at work, do they have to pay you for any vacation time you've got?

I tell them two weeks in advance or a lil more if you can. Whenever you know i'd tell them. Depends on your job. Some full time positions pay you for a certain number of vacation days and then after that you have to take personal days. You'd have to find out what your job gives you. Good luck! Where you planning on going?

They are not required to pay you vacation time.

I don't think that is true.  I believe vacation is earned, and belongs to you, and if you meet the requirements, you must be paid.

I'm getting a job as a deputy jailer. They called me this morning to tell me this job was mine and is open right now. They will hold the job for me but the earlier I could start the better. I've got vacation already scheduled for June 23rd through July 5th. I'd like to leave myself a week or two inbetween so I can try and get used to working nights. The problem is if I don't give it until I get back from vacation I won't have any time before I start, I'll go strait from one to the other. At the same time I want to leave on good terms so I don't really want to give my notice the first day of my vacation. I'm kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Go to personnal and check at the source. Do NOT believe what your boss or supe says.

Pred: Go talk to your future employer about your plans, maybe they can work out something for you.

Depends on the company.

Mine will buy back vacation and person days if you give notice.

If you are terminated you get nothing.

Depends upon the company, and possibly state employment law.  Typically if you work a proper notice you will get paid.  Go to HR and find out.

Take your remaining vacation and dont go back. That way, you get your time off, you get paid for it, and you start your new job.

Yep.

That's what I did at the last job.  Took all vacation time and said to consider it my two weeks notice.

This is the only way to be sure. I've seen plenty of people get screwed out of their vacation time.

Well, the problem with that though is I've got a lot of friends in management where I work now. I don't want to burn any bridges. However I'm not for sure if I can have it both ways.

In todays time, you owe loyalty only to yourself.  If they needed to get rid of you for any reason, financial or otherwise, they wouldn't hesitate.  Take the vacation, THEN give notice.  You can be a nice guy, but nice guys get screwed.

depends on the employer and type of business, my present employer asks that employees give two weeks notice,

but once they turn in their notice, they are escorted off property and paid whatever time(salary, vaction, severence) at the end of the pay period.

thats the one man, it doesn't happen to all the ones that give notice, mainly the ones that have access to the money are gone as soon as they give notice,

it goes into their files "as gave notice" which allows them to be eligible for rehire at a later date.

For us,if we give 2 weeks notice, we are paid any banked benefit time.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) regard vacation time as a liability to the employer accrued during the time which the employee worked. Your vacation time is a liability owed by the company to YOU, just as if you loaned money to your company. Take it, it'syours. And if they withhold your vacation pay then contact your state's department of labor. (Yes, I have Bachelors Degree in Accounting)

Your company should have a personnel policy manual that you can reference.
Vacation is a benefit offered by the employer, and how it is used is up to them. Same with Sick leave. The Federal FLSA doesn't cover vacation benefits.
"MOST" companies will pay you for unused vacation time, if you give them the customary 2 weeks notice. YMMV.

And, good luck on your new gig.

Here in California, the law states that you must be paid your accrued vacation time, along with regular pay, within a certain time frame after you quit (48 hours?).

Check with your state's labour board and do the right thing, give notice.

Not in Tennessee...

If they don't want to pay you for unused earned vacation they don't have too. The only chance you have of collecting is if you have an agreement in writing or it states in the companies published policies they will pay for unused vacation… and then you would have to sue to collect if they did not want to pay.

My last job I lost 12+ weeks of earned unused vacation when I got let go. I had a verbal agreement with my boss I would be paid for unused vacation… his attitude when he let me go was tough shit I am not going to pay no matter what I told you. The State of TN told me that was between him and me they could do nothing.
