Getting My Final Paycheck...

Rod Ronald Rod Ronald
So, I have been fired in the past. This is no secret. However, I have never been so screwed over on my final paycheck as I have been with the last company I worked for. Has anyone ever had to pay back there vacation time they used 4 months prior to being fired?!?!
I'm not sure on the laws here, but this has wrong written all over it. I contacted HR and the director said my final pay check would be $2.00. No shit. I called my former boss and basically was told tough shit. I'm out of idea here besides calling Labor Division.
What would you guys do in this situation?

At least seek out a free mini consultation from a lawyer who handles labor law.

I would call the labor division in your state and tell them what is going on and see what they say. Or like bignuf said, call a lawyer, but they wont do anything until they get paid. So I would start with the state first and see where that goes before you pay someone to help you take care of it.

With most companies, employees accrue paid time off for vacations, sick time, etc. at a rate of a certain amount of PTO for hours clocked at work. Because they can estimate how many hours of PTO you will earn in the year, many companies allow you to take vacation time up to your expected accrual amount before you've actually accrued it, knowing that you will continue to accrue it as you work throughout the year. If the company allows you to take paid vacation time before you actually "earn" it then I believe it's standard practice for them to take the money you were paid for any hours of PTO that you did not accrue before your termination out of your final check. It's worth checking with a lawyer, but I believe they are within their rights to do this, since they paid you essentially in advance for time you didn't earn. Worth checking since I could be wrong, but this is my understanding.
