Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
According to the Kansas Dept of Labor, there is no state or federal laws in place that require an employer to pay an employee for sick, vacation, or personal time hours built up unless the employer has a specific policy stating that they do so or have established a pattern of doing so over the years.
So I would suggest talking with HR to see what the company policy is on this and if they don't pay, then start taking some time off and smelling the roses... I ran into the same issue when I left my employment after 5 years at 70 hours a week...
