According to my company's employee handbook 2 or more years of employment is eligible to take
15 days per year for vacation. I have been worked for 4 years,
Recently I request my vacation 5/20 - 6/7/2019 ( net 15 days) that means three week vacation, but the company insist on their understanding and only allow me 6/4/2019 ( net 10 days).
I would like to know 'what would be authoritative interpretation relating to labor law'.
Looking forward to your answer.
Under California law, there is no specific rule with regard to vacation pay other than the rule that you cannot ever forfeit vacation pay. All other rules are left to the discretion of the employer. That said, it is possible that the vacation policy says one thing, and the company is saying another. Without seeing either, it's hard to tell.
While I am an attorney with over fifteen years of experience, until we sign a retainer agreement, I am not YOUR attorney. My postings are meant for informational purposes only, and DO NOT constitute legal advice, nor do they create an attorney-client relationship between us. As such, the question, my answer, and any comments left to my answer, are not protected by attorney-client privilege. Also, keep in mind that all legal claims have relevant statute of limitations, some of which can be very short. So, if you believe you need to hire an attorney, and need legal advice, seek out legal representation as soon as possible.
I agree with Mr. Treglio's answer. I would add that you should look at your pay stubs to see how many hours of vacation you are accumulating.
Normally, your employer appears to only be allowing you to take 12 days of vacation. However, it is possible that you used 3 days for other time off. You should consider asking HR to walk you through their calculation, so you are both on the same page.
