Vacation must be taken during the fiscal year in which it is earned.
Vacation days for any calendar year may be taken before they have actually
been earned. Where permitted by applicable law, any wages paid for
vacation which have been taken but not earned, will be deducted from your
final paycheck if your employment terminates before the vacation is earned.
Likewise, any vacation earned but not taken will be paid at termination of
employment. Employees granted an approved leave of absence for more
than 21 calendar days will not earn vacation during their leave for all pay
periods following the 21st day off work. Any vacation days taken in excess of
the annual earned amount will be deducted via payroll upon the employee’s
return to work. Hourly employees with eighteen or more years of service
will be paid up to five earned, but unused vacation days. This time, will be
paid out in January of the following calendar year. Employees must be an
active Dayton Freight Lines employee on the date of distribution in order to
receive the vacation payout. Time paid will be base using current hourly rate
or miles calculation, all taxes and 401(k) deductions, if applicable, will be
withheld from these earnings.
Vacations can be a time of refreshment and renewal. We encourage
all employees to take their vacations as earned. Unused vacation days
cannot be carried over to the next year.
