State Vacation and PTO Laws

While only a couple of states require that employees be provided with paid time off (PTO), many other states have specific requirements about how employees can lose unused paid vacation or PTO if an employer chooses to provide these benefits.

We recommend employers apply the vacation requirements shown in this chart to PTO, unless a distinction is noted.
