Where I work you get a weeks paid vacation if you stay with the company for a year. I put my letter of resignation in 3 weeks ago and said I would stay until at least January 9th (Friday). My one year mark at the company was January 8th (Thursday). I am still working here until the company hires a replacement (its a small business and I didn't want to leave them with no one to cover me). They have just found someone and I will be here for at least another two weeks training them. Can I still use my vacation days? I really need the money so I hope that I can. My employer will probably be upset but I'm not passing up money I earned.
