Failure to Pay Vacation and Personal Time
Use It or Lose It Vacation Days? Not in California.
Have you lost vacation days or personal time off because you didn’t use them all by the end of the year? In California, use-it-or-lose-it vacation policies are illegal. Personal days fall under this law, as well. When you leave a job, your employer is legally required to pay you for your accrued but unused vacation and personal time, as well as all other wages and compensation, earned.
