The company I am currently employed with does not offer a payout for unused vacation time; any unused time is forfeited upon my leave.
That being said, what I would like to do is give my notice to my current employer the minimum two weeks in advance, plus the number of unused vacation days (in my case, this would be two weeks + three additional days).
I would write in my notice that my effective last day in the office would be in two weeks, but my official termination be three business days past the effective date, so that I can take the last official employment days as PTO and be paid for those accrued days.
As I am employed in an at-will state, I understand it's possible that my employment will simply be terminated on my last effective day rather than my requested official day, but aside from this possibility, what should I be considering? Or, should I not consider doing this at all?
