I was terminated after 7 years of employment because I wanted to take some of my accrued vacation time off. At this point in my career, I had filed a sexual harrassment claim against him (although he was not aware of this yet), as well as initiated an investigation of the "comp time" practice he utilized (instructed employees to keep track of overtime hours worked to be used at a future point at straight time wages), because it was determined to be illegal. Although he paid me for 4 of the days of vacation I did use, he fired me two weeks later and then issued a check to me for an amount nearly twice my normal pay and wrote "to be determined later." I had worked 246 hours of "comp time" in the two years prior and wonder what he intends to say for what that was pmt for. Severance?
