vacation pay from previous employer


my previous employer says I am not qualified for vacation pay because I did not stay for one year. I checked around on the web and it seems as though unless their vacation policy states the requirements, the money should be paid to the employee. I read the policy up and down and nowhere does it state anything regarding being employed for 1 year before being eligible for the payout.

anyone have any opinions on this?

I know I've worked places for less than a year and quit and they paid me all of my unused vacation on my final check.

yeah like I said, if they state in the policy that they will not pay, then they dont have to. or at least that is the way I interpreted the law.

Could you take a vacation in the first year? I know you were earning time from day one or so, but when could you have used it?

They owe it to you if it could have been used immediately IMO.

Not to kill your hopes; but my job states I have to stay with the company for a year.
