Hello,

Thank you for the information. However, in order to assist you I need a bit more information. First, I need to know what State you work in and what your specific legal question is. Then I need to know if you are saying that your handbook says that all accrued leave of all types is payable upon termination of the employment relationship. Finally, are you in a union?

New York. I did not receive paid-out for my sick time and personal time. I spoke with HR and they told me this was company policy but it is not written in the handbook. I was also informed by my manager that I would get my time paid out.
