Employees win Jury Verdict in Accrued Vacation Case

I have argued many times that earned accrued vacation pay counts as wages under the Maryland Wage Payment and Collection law. Counting vacation pay under the law is significant because it allows employees to collect up to three times the amount owed if an employer wrongfully withholds earned vacation pay.

My colleague Marc Smith at Smith, Lease and Goldstein reports at the wage collection blog that he won a jury verdict obtaining accrued vacation and additional damages under the Wage Payment and Collection Law.

DISCLOSURE: Mr. Smith and I are using the wage collection blog to report on updates on developments in wage law and on our own wage collection cases.
