Question
How does pay vacation work if the job requires to have pd vacation?  
My husband has been working at his company for over a yr and they get paid vacation,Leave time and sick time. If my husband leaves due to kids being sick he takes his leave time. Now what Im wondering is since they get paid vacation and all the other stuff. I always thought that pd vacation was diff. then Leave/sick time.his job has never said anythin to him about vac. and when I looked on his check stub then his pd vac. was not there so he went and asked y and they tried saying that its because his leave time is his pd vac. Is this even right? cuz everywhere my mom has worked they immediately added her vacation once a year for her to use. but according to his job they give him 6 hr. a month and if he has to take of for kids then they use it. and hes only missed a couple days and only has 13 hrs of leave when hes been there for 1 yr. He should have alot more then that. So I need help please

Answer
Vacation is not required by law to be given to employees. If it is given than the company must abide by their own policies. The company can say when vacation time can be used and when it cannot. Yes they can use paid vacaton for time off sick.

If he is not using the full vacation time promised and he is not receiving what he should than you need to call and talk to your Kansas department of labor.

I can answer questions about payroll laws and payroll tax laws and Human Resource laws and agencies. I can answer federal payroll and human resource law questions and most states; I do not have a knowledge of the local taxes for cities and counties within the state. If and when I can I will try and send you the website where you can reference the answer and where you can obtain more information as well as a contact number if needed for that particular agency. Some agencies I have worked with are IRS, Department of Labor (federal and state), Revenue Canada (and provincial governments), Inland Revenue, OSHA (0ccupational Safety and Health Administration); Social Security Administration and National Child Support as well as other agencies in Payroll and Human Resources. Some Laws I am particularly familiar with are FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act), FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act ) , QDRO's, QMCSO's, and other support orders and garnishments, USERRA (Uniformed Services Employment and Remployment Rights Act,PPA Act (Pension Protection Act of 2006, As well as most other employment type acts. I am also well versed in the Title V Civil Rights Act and the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
