Am I Entitled To Be Paid For Unused Vacation Time Or Receive Severance Pay Upon Termination?

Vacation pay, holiday pay, sick leave, and severance pay are considered benefits and may be paid based on the employer's policies. There is no requirement in state law to provide these benefits. If you feel you are entitled to benefits upon termination, you may pursue recovery in small claims court or through a private attorney.
