Kansas City, KS asked in Employment Law for Oklahoma

Q: Is it legal for my employer to take my vacation time away because I didnt use it by my anniversary date?

I had 30 hrs of PTO on my 4/10 paycheck and my next paycheck was 4/25 & my PTO is gone. They said they take it away because I did not use it by my 4/13 anniversary date. They never told me I had to use it or lose it. Is this legal?

A: I recommend you consult an employment attorney to discuss the details. Find out if this policy is in an employment handbook or otherwise documented somewhere. If so, be sure to bring it to the attorney consult.
