Exactly the reason why I'm quitting where I'm at. We've busted our a$$'* off and were up for bonus for several different periods and they ALWAYS find a reason to not give us our bonus. This has happened so many times and I'm fed up with it. They will do anything they possibly can to screw over their employees. I'm not going to be their puppet anymore.

Good news! a fellow manager found an additional policy book that DOES state that employees are entitled to their accrued vacation time as long as they do not violate any company policies and put in a full two weeks notice. The policy book that WE had on hand "conveniently" had this page torn out. Our area manager was in the store the other day and requested to see the policy book. We are thinking he removed those pages at that time.

Just an Idea But if you have 3 weeks Vacation why dont you take it, Wait till a week in and then put in your 2 weeks notice... But continue your vacation for the rest of the time. Then you have a full 3 weeks to find a new job. Its what I would do! I sure hope all works out for you!

Alternative suggestion:

Don't tell anyone you are leaving, take your vacation time, come back, do another couple of weeks, then give your notice that you are done. Offer the two weeks, but if they balk, just withdraw the offer and tell them your final day is "today" (whatever that day may be.)

Two week notice is a professional courtesy to employers. It'* not a requirement. Just like employers often welch on promises of severance pay.

The important thing is to not loose your temper. Just tell them it'* time for you to do something different (aka, no hard feelings...even if there are on your side) It'* just a little professional resume insurance in case your next employer really does check references.

Maybe I just look at things differently. I tend to yawn during the normal HR speal about bonus pay and benefits. I never count on a bonus till I have the check in the bank. I work for the normal compensation. If I get a bonus, then I'm greatfull, but otherwise it might as well not exist.

I'd rather cash out the vacation time after I quit because I really need the cash right now to pay off some things. I'd rather have the cash than the time off honestly.
