Fired and No Vacation Pay

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being fired and got no vacation pay: Is this right?

My boss wanted to have a meeting and when I got there he was at the bar drinking and wanted me to drink too. Then it moved up to his office with the manager, my boss and me. I got mad and left. Then the next day when I came to work, he replaced me and never paid me my 1 week vacation.

Signed, Out Without

Answer:

DearĀ Out Without:

Apparently you and your boss were not drinking buddies. The meeting you were called to must not have gone well. You don’t explain why you got mad and left. Now you have no job and no vacation pay. You can check with your company’s Human Resources to learn if you worked there long enough to get vacation pay. If you do, you can request it.
