Most states frown upon clauses in employment contracts that violate state laws. And I would have said all states, but who knows what’s happening in states like Florida and Texas.As long as the contract complies with the law. I should have written the expanded version of my last post instead of stopping where I did. I originally planned to type "California frowns about clauses in employment contracts that violate state law".
But there are clauses in California employment contracts that do not violate state law and that can control how PTO is paid out. For one example, a contract clause can cap the amount of PTO a worker can accumulate.
