What is the name of your state? Oregon
This past Monday, I quit my job - when I did so, it was in a less than adult manner, and I essentially walked right out the door. I received a message shortly after to confirm my address for mailing my final check, which has now been received.
After-taxes, this should have indicated $754.95 net/$827.18 gross - however, in the list of hours and earnings, there is a line reading "PTO- Termination Overpay", indicating a deduction from total hours and wages of $483.88, bringing it to $271.07 net/$343.30 gross.
From what I understand, I cannot be *charged* for PTO unless I received a loan of some kind/used more than my accrued PTO. After speaking with a representative from the Oregon Bureau of Labor, she agrees - my question, to get to the point, is can they do this? The employee handbook for the company has an unusual description of this practice that I don't wholly understand which reads:
" When you terminate employment, your supervisor will verify your PTO and, if appropriate, approve an adjustment to your final pay to reflect the PTO you've earned vs. what you've already taken.
Example: Say you terminate employment in September, after you've taken eight of your 25 PTO days. In this case, your prorated PTO amount is 9/12 of 25 days, or 18.75 days. From that total, your supervisor will subtract the eight days you've already taken, so you'll be paid for a total of 10.75 days.
However, if you had already taken more than 9/12 of your PTO amount (in other words, more than 18.75 days) then you'll be asked to reimburse Wells Fargo for the excess amount."
