“Waiting Periods for Vacation Accruals May Be on the Way Out,” Society of Human Resource Management
In an article published on May 8, 2017 by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), Jacksonville of counsel Susan Warner offers insight into waiting periods for vacation accruals. She mentions that some U.S. states require an employer to pay out accrued paid vacation after termination. However, she goes on to tell the publication, "If businesses offer 'too good to be true' vacation time, then employees may take advantage of that policy, whether it be a high-level executive or entry-level employee. Employers should enact sensible caps on the accrual of vacation time, allowing employees the leave they need and balancing the business interests of the employer."
