the handbook when the vacation time was earned had no limit and was also use it or lose it.. What rules do the vacation hours fall under? Also their lawyer is claiming they gave me an "extra" 5 vacation days which was not stated to me at the time of my termination. Is that legal? I quote company records show you used your full 15 days of accrued vac time in accordance with terms in the handbook. In addition on your final paycheck you were paid an additional 5 days (40 hrs) vac time. Your final paycheck included 160 hrs of vac time. My hourly rate is 37.86 my check should have been $6057 according to their lawyer . It was only $2239. He then said "If you have any records to support such a claim, please provide them to me so it can be evaluated against company records. Am I being snowed?
