California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Hello and welcome.
My name is Tina and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
The employer is not dictating now that any previously accrued vacation time be forfeited, just that you must now take the vacation time instead of being paid the cash value of it without taking vacation? Is this a correct understanding of the circumstances?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
Yes . My employer will give me my 3 weeks vacation . My question was that prior to june 10 of this year, one could ask for cash for time accrued and not take time time off work.. However the new policy will not cash any accrued vacation and that any accrued vacation prior to the new new policy is subject to the new ruling. My position is that accrued time till June 10 is subject to the old policy not to the one that became effective on June 10 and that I should get cash for the 2 weeks prior to June 10 and I will honor the new policy that started on June 10 of this year.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
