Vacation and Paid Time Off Benefits by State: New 50-State Chart Added

XpertHR has added a helpful new 50-State chart to its employee benefits resources, Vacation and Paid Time Off Benefits by State.

A private employer is not required by federal or state law to provide paid or unpaid vacation time. However, if employers choose to provide vacation time as a benefit to employees, they may have certain compliance requirements. Most employers provide some form of vacation benefit because they find that it helps them stay competitive in attracting new talent and retaining current talent. Some employers choose to use separate vacation policies and sick time policies, while others decide to lump together all paid time off (PTO) benefits.

The new chart helps employers understand whether their jurisdiction allows caps on vacation/PTO accrual and allows use-it-or-lose-it policies. The chart also links to relevant employee handbook statements XpertHR has in its Employee Handbooks tool.
