Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Do you have any written agreement or confirmation as a proof of the GM verbal promise to you?
Thank you for your follow up.
Unfortunately, text messages are not legally binding and do not create a legal agreement and in many cases cannot even be authenticated and admitted into evidence.
Do you have a written agreement signed by the GM or another company executive stating that you would be entitled to this vacation pay upon leaving the company?
Unfortunately, verbal promises, without written agreement are generally very difficult to enforce, without a written agreement showing the terms of employment and the fact that employee would be eligible for a vacation pay upon leaving the company, so unfortunately, generally there would not be any legal recourse, under similar circumstances.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
