vacation payout at termination?
At the begining of the year, I was provided notification that the law changed for vacation payouts at termination. Our policy said that you only recieved that payout if you have been employeed for a least one year. The information I was given said that regardless what your policy says, if vacation is accrued you MUST pay it out on the last paycheck. So, I started to payout vacation to all employees. My boss questioned me on this so I explained to him the change. He didn't agree, so he researched it and came back to me saying that the law had not passed and wan't going to pass; discontinue to payout the vacation. So, I did. But now this is being challenged within our organization. I'm getting conflicting info from the State labor board and the Federal. What is the law?
