Vacation Pay

As part of our comprehensive wage and hour practice, the attorneys of Lavi & Ebrahimian, LLP, represent workers throughout Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and all of California in the pursuit of unpaid vacation wages.

Does My Employer Have To Pay Vacation Wages?

There is no law requiring that employers provide vacation days, but employers who elect to offer vacation must comply with state law. Generally, California employers must pay employees all vacation wages which have accrued.

In California, earned vacation is considered wages. As the employee performs work, the vacation wages vest and the employer owes those wages to the employee. These vested wages cannot be forfeited and must be paid to the employee even if the employer terminates the employment relationship.

An employer may create a vacation policy which places a cap on vacation benefits, but the vacation policy cannot forfeit accrued vacation wages. Generally, unpaid vacation wages must be paid in a timely fashion after employment ends.
