Q: I was fired from a job on 5-2-23, and i had pto built up,can they legally keep that from me on termination.
I gave my two week notice,was called into the office and was told i had infractions concerning the company policy,was wrote up on several items,at the last day of my resignation week,i was called back into office and terminated.
A: It depends. Some states require payment of accrued vacation time because this is a part of the compensation package. But accrued sick leave is not treated the same way. Unable to tell about your PTO. This case arises under EMPLOYMENT/BENEFITS/WAGE law. You need to discuss with an attorney in your jurisdiction that specializes in this kind of law.
