Hi all,

I am turning in my two weeks notice this coming Thursday. I need to start the long drive to my new job on Friday April 12 so I can start my first day at my new job on Monday April 15. I had planned to ask in my resignation letter to use a vacation day for Friday April 12. Purpose being that it will finish up a 2 week pay period that I really need to be my normal paycheck amount.

Is this a dumb idea? Should I just write that my last day will be Thursday April 11 and move on with life? I have 12 days of unused vacation that will be paid out according to Colorado law.

Find out from HR what is appropriate and acceptable. Generally, I always work the full two weeks of my notice. However, at my last job, I simply did not care to be there any longer than I had to due to a toxic management group. I gave them two weeks notice, but I worked one full week, one day the next week to wrap things up with a manager who was on PTO the week before, and took the final four days off. I still had another couple of weeks of PTO that were paid out (also in CO). Nothing happened that disadvantaged me going forward. I got a decent amount of time off between jobs, which helped me to re-charge.

I would burn the PTO before the notice period.

Depends on state or local law.

Some states mandate that they pay you for unused vacation days. If yes, take the extra money.

Don't count on taking PTO - you may be walked out the door that same day you turn in your notice.

Check with HR or with your HR manual.

Many companies require you give notice of vacation well in advance of taking it. If that period of notice is longer than 2 weeks, than they may not award you the time off. If the state law or employer policy allows for you to be paid out the vacation days you did not take, that's good. Otherwise, you may simply lose them.

You need to ask you boss if it is acceptable or not.
