If you quit your job do you get your vacation time in pay?

Like Tree8Likes

i have almost 300 hours in vacation time, if i quit my job, will i receive that time in payment?

also, how bad does it look to the next employer if i quit my job? i've worked there for 10 years.
You need to call your HR or look up their policies regarding the vacation time. It's different at each company.
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

10 years is a long time to work somewhere, so I'm betting that will look good to future employers so long as you give a positive spin to why you left (I was looking for new challenges, etc.).

It depends on the policy there. I've quit jobs before and had my vacation time paid out to me but that doesn't mean that would be the case where you are.

Also, being at a job for 10 years infers stability and dependability. Given the economy now, it's difficult for people to stay somewhere for that length of time so the fact that you were able to is a huge plus.

I'd consider giving 300 days notice, personally....



My company doesn't let you accrue time off in that kind of amount, but you are given a certain amount yearly. If you leave you get paid out a pro-rated amount for the remaining yearly time off.


When you started the job, people were leaving jobs in a year and a half to two years to look for "better" ones. Even if "it was just time to move on" is your reason for leaving, I don't imagine choosing to leave would be looked upon negatively. Personally, I'd be trying to find a new job first with this economy, though!

It depends but sometimes they won't even if they are supposed to. My last company did that to a long term employee there. You should find out the history with employees leaving and vacation hours.
We cannot carry over vacation time. And vacation time is accrued during the year. i can take all my vacation at the beginning of the year but if
I left and i had not accrued it all yet I would owe them.

Company I worked for prior to retirement let you accrue up to 2 times your vacation earned; i.e., if you were eligible for 2 weeks vacation, you could accrue up to 4 weeks. Once you hit that 4 weeks you would lose any vacation earned until you started using it.

OK, that was all off topic. . . back to the original question. Each company has their own policy. When I retired, I was paid for the vacation time I had not used.

are you going to another job or just taking time off? leaving a job in this ecomony without another is risky if you need to work. many people are out much longer than they expect when they are ready to go back. i have a friend that was laid off in sept. she got a nice package and thought she'd enjoy some time off with her family. here it is almost 10 months later and she's still looking. she's been on interviews (intense and invoved interviews) and still no offer. not trying to deter you just saying if you know you need to still work you might want to get another job and negotiate a start date that will allow you 2-4 weeks off or whatever you can afford before quitting.

How is it legal to now pay out vacation? Is that not owed time?
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Here you get 2 weeks a year legally, and I know I've always gotten that when I left. If your company gives you more (I get 5 weeks), I'm not sure that they pay those out.

If I had taken no vacation for the last 4 years though, they would pay me out the 8 weeks the governemnt guarantees.

Some do. Some don't. I'd talk to HR and find out.

My co. won't give any vacation or leave time pay if I quit. Nothing for unused leave time.

And on the second question, 10 years is terrific! Nobody would consider you a "job hopper" if you leave a job after ten years. That's longer than many people stay in a job - even CEO's.

Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.

Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
To show how I procrastinate I have been at my job for 20 years next month. I often thought about hunting for something else but I just kept
putting it off. LOL. And now my benefits and pay are too good!!

I wish we could where I work. You use it or lose it. We can accure up to 120 hours and anything after that is lost if not used. Quit? Bye bye vacation hours, no check for them.
