Hello,

Thank you for your post, however, I am unclear about what your facts are. Can you explain them differently? Are you saying you were on PTO and your boss called you in to work, or are you saying that because your schedule changed you quit and now want to be paid, along with your final paycheck, the unused PTO? What does 2 weeks have to do with your question?
