time is a voluntary benefit that organizations offer to employees. There
are no federal regulations requiring employers to provide vacation
days, but it has become common business practice to do so.
Employees accrue hours of paid vacation time at a certain rate for each
day worked. Different employers use different formulas to calculate
vacation time. So, an employee with 15 days of paid vacation time at one
company may or may not enjoy the same number of paid vacation days
after changing jobs.
Exempt employees should receive the same salary pay rate for vacation
days. So if you are exempt and take two weeks of paid vacation, you
should receive a paycheck for the same amount of salary for those two
weeks as if you had worked.
