Hello, I am in NY as well. is there an employee manual or policy in place on use of vacation days? are they earned for the year?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have already accrued those days and as I don't have the policy book with me I'm unable to check.
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 2 years ago.
If it's accrued, it needs to be honored. The policy book may have rules about when it can be used such as advance notice, compatibility with others schedules, but otherwise the employer cannot block you from using it and cannot act unreasonably since its an earned and vested benefit.
