So, according to the Dept. of Labor for the state of IL, they say, "A former employee has a claim...for the collection of the monetary equivalent of his/her vacation time earned in accordance with an employment contract, agreement or policy." See Section 300.520. This means that if they have a policy that says that you are to be paid at the time you quit or if they have a policy that says that you are not to have your vacation time forfeited if you quit, then they must pay. Otherwise, they aren't required to pay. What other questions did you have for me about this today?
