Resignation Employment End Date

Postby Bredon » Sat Dec 10, 2016 6:07 am

I have submitted a resignation to my company.  I have given a date ending in 2 weeks.  During two week notice period I submitted vacation time request.  I was told by HR that I could not extend my last day of employment with vacation days?  Is this true for Texas Labor Law

Resignation Employment End Date

Postby Peppin » Sat Dec 10, 2016 10:36 pm

Vacation is a fringe benefit. The employer can say when it may or may not be used. If the copany policy says it cannot be used to extend the last day of employment than it cannot be used for that purpose.

From Q/A section Workforce Texashttp://www.twc.state.tx.us/ui/lablaw/paydaylaw_faq.pdf

Q: Does an employer have to offer its employees vacation pay? If so, what are the guidelines?

A: Under the Texas Payday Law an employer is not required to offer fringe benefits such as vacation pay, holiday pay or other pay for hours not worked. However, if the employer offers these benefits in writing, the employer would be obligated to comply with their own policy or employment agreement. The employer has the right to establish policy on how these benefits are earned, accrued, used and if they are paid out when not used, barring any policy which might be considered discriminatory as defined by law.
