I work in Florida, what are the laws in regards to PTO payout?
I worked for a company that was going through a lot of financial issues. They reduced our work week to 4,8 hours days to save money. I have since found another job and have PTO owed to me. They are not disputing this, however they are now trying to pay me the PTO hours at a reduced rate. I have the employee manual and it does not state that anywhere. As a matter of fact, it also states that they were to pay other benefits which I did not get. They took the 4 day work week pay and divided it by 40 hours to get the hourly pay for the PTO hours payoff. Is this legal?2 answers | asked Jun 2, 2011 2:02 PM [EST] | applies to Florida
If they are offering to pay a reduced rate of PTO and you already have another job be careful that there are no "strings" attached like "non-compete". Certain provisions may restrict your ability to work in your industry/area. It may not be worth accepting the PTO if you will be working for a competitor and they require you to sign a non-compete.
Its important to consult an employment attorney if you have questions regarding separation or severance compensation and your rights.
