COVID-19 and Employee Vacations

Date Delivered: September 30th, 2020

Topic: Vacation time during COVID-19

There is no question that employers are continuing to face unique issues in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Employee vacation has become a hot button topic – one that is requiring employers to re-evaluate their typical practices.

We answer many questions employers are asking with respect to vacation time and pay. Questions such as:

  • Can employers force employees to take vacation?
  • Can employers deny vacation requests?
  • Can employers just pay vacation pay and ask employees to forgo their vacation time?
  • Can employers make one-time exceptions to their vacation policies?

We also provide employers with vacation management best practices to ensure legislative compliance.
