Leaving Target, Should I request for my vacation before putting in my two weeks so I don’t lose it?

I’m leaving for another retail company soon, and I was wondering if we lose our accrued vacation when we leave? I have 19hrs of vacation and 5 hours of personal holiday.
Is it wise to go ahead and put in for it now? Could I call in one day next week and have that count towards my vacation?

ALWAYS use personal time and wellness first. ALWAYS. Some states payout vacation time earned no matter what. If you job abandon or walk out that money is yours and you will get a check. Some states are “so sad too bad” and you forfeit what you earned. Find out which state you are in before you proceed...

Yep, around here it’s definitely use it or lose it. My advice would be use it all before you put in your notice, then work out your two weeks and ease on down the road. Leaving a job for a better one is not being a quitter, it’s improving your situation. Good luck!

Don’t use your vacation time ! Target will pay you once you resign vacation and personal holiday hours. You should try to use all your sick pay though or else you will loose that

Unless there’s been a recent change, paid out vacation is taxed at a higher rate than vacation that you actually take.
