    The title says it all. If you quit or get fired and you never took your paid vacation for the year are you entitled to some money? I was just wondering. Thanks.

    Most companies pay out vacation time.

    Not true for my company in CA. Get paid for accumulated vacation, but forfeit PTO.

    This my homegirl quit a company and they aren't trying to pay her her vacation. Would be close to 1000 in money she's owed. They claim it was in the paper she signed that they (the company) can chose to pay it out or not.

    I dont know if your company do it but I'd ask them to cash you out for your vacation prior to quitting (IE add it to your regular check since vacation is usually paid out of a different payroll so you could get paid for 80 a week). Just tell them you need the money for an unknown expense that came up so when you give you two weeks (or less :lol) you got all the money that is owed to you already and spare yourself any potential headaches in the future.

    This... I hated my old job, it paid good but I hated it, when I landed a better job, I did them dirty.

    I put in a request for vacation days, and made sure it got approved... After it was approved, I gave them a Boro e that I was quitting the day after I got back from "vacation" :lol

    It was like a 5 week long vacation, which I also killed my sick time in between weeks.

    Yeah they'll pro-rate it. I'd take the Vacation before you quit or get fired. Less time to be compensated for that time.
