- Can I use vacation during notice period?
- Is it OK to take vacation during 2 weeks notice?
- Can I take my vacation and then quit?
If you prefer to use your accrued vacation during your 10-day notice period, you may be able to do so but your vacation time request presumably will be subject to your employer’s policy for approving vacation time requests. Most employers have a policy that vacation days must be pre-approved before they can be taken.
Managers are entitled to deny vacation or requests for individuals who have given their two weeks notice.
Workers may be entitled to receive compensation for any unused vacation time after they quit. In some states, workers forfeit their unused paid time off (PTO) when they separate from the company. In other states, including California, employers must pay out any unused vacation time immediately upon termination.
