Vacation Pay

If I work for a company and part of the benifits is that for every year worked, you are entitled to 1 week of vacation. Well I put my two weeks notice in last tuesday night and I asked my boss today if I could cash in my vacation time. He said no and that I lost them. If I wanted to, I could take off the next 3 days and get paid for those days. This is what I found on the website. Scroll down to the eighth question.

Can someone confirm this or help me out on how I should handle this?

alot depends on how your plan says you get the time.

Model you have been with the company 1 year and have 1 week vac

If your company policy states you have 1 week of vacation as of Jan 1 then it is payable to you upon resignation, granted you have not used any.

If your policy states you have earned the right to 1 week of vacation but it is accrued over the course of the year. Meaning you are elligable to 1 week of vacation but you only can claim 1/12 per month. Then he is right to give you a couple days of it but not all. Whats worse is if you had already taken the week prior they can hold back from the last check that which you have not accrued.

This is how my previous company worked it. You gained time for every year you worked. That is the max allowable for you to take during the next year. But say you had gotten up to 12 days of vacation. At the end of each month you would have gotten to receive the 1 day. If you had taken all 12 days in January and resigned as of June 30, you would owe the company for 6 days. Unfortunatley its leagal as I was looking into it when I had quit.

But it sounds like your my first example, work this year for next years vacation. If thats the case they owe you. Atleast I hope thats the case.

I have my vacation policy paper right in front of me. It states, "Employees of xxx. become eligible for 1 week of vacation upon completion of one full year of continuous service, effective on their anniversary Date. Upon completion of 2 full years of continuous service, imployees are eligible for 2 weeks of Vacation, effective on their anniversary dates".
Than it says "Your vacation eligibility is as follows":
Name:
Hire Date 7/10/06
Eligible for 1 weeks vacation as of 7/10/07

You have 1 week vacation, (minus what you've used since july '07).

When you print that out, hand write "Illinois Department of Labor," at the top in big letters along with their phone number.

He probally knows the law and is just trying to screw you
