Employment Law/Accrued paid time off at end of employment
Expert: Margaret M. deMarteleire - 11/2/2012
Question My brother works in NE for a company domiciled in Arkansas. He has been told that he would not receive his accrued PDO (paid days off) if he voluntarily left the company, but WOULD if he were terminated. NE law holds that personal time is considered compensation and should be paid at the end of employment (if not severed by the company). What is AR law re: personal time off, and which law would trump? Thank you in advance for your response.
Answer Cynthia - The law that applies to your brother is the law of the state in which he works, not of the state in which the company is headquartered. If Nebraska says he gets the time, he has to get the time. Otherwise, he can file a wage claim with the NE Labor Department.
