The bill sounds like crap. Just another way to oppress the workers in this state. The employer could abuse this way too easily. Maybe they employer would deny having been given notice so he could keep the employee’s money. I could totally see that happening. And in this job market where job seekers are a dime a dozen, do we really need to feel so sorry for that poor, poor employer who is left short on a work day? If this happens to him it’s probably for good reason. Maybe his working conditions are crap, maybe someone else will pay a dollar and hour more. People are trying to survive!

Well then, the employer should be required to give the employees a 10 day notice when they are going to fire them. This is just crap especially in a right to work state where the employer can fire someone immediately but an employee leaving would have to give 10 days notice. Also I think that payout of accrued leave is required under federal law.

If your gonna make it employee’s can’t use vacation time but can accrue it, better get cracking on those employers that have a use it or loose it policy. They should have to pay out what was not used each year. 2yrs come on give me a break. Get with the program employed @ will state will stay that way. If you want to have a business that can do this put it in the handbook and your information for employees or move to a state like commifornia. And make it both ways as stated by liberty.
I’ve had to quit with lil notice due to health or it was interfering with school. I’ve also been layed off just after walking into work with in 5mins of being there.

While it can be argued that the employer could take advantage of the employee, employer is the master. He can do whatever he wishes. That is the way business works. If the employee, he does not like it, he can quit. Hopefully the Republicans they will pass this law. Then they can get on to the business of getting more money for their hotel and keeping children out of smoke cars.
