Many employers offer their employees paid vacation time. Depending on the employer’s policy, vacation may accrue slowly. For example an employee may earn one vacation day each month or after a certain amount of hours are worked. Employment policies also typically state how long you have to use your accrued vacation time. For instance, it may expire after two years. However, accrued vacation policies must adhere [to] state laws on the subject, which many people may not realize. State laws may even trump an employer’s policy regarding how much you can accrue when it expires and even whether it can be cashed out when the employee leaves the company.
