I resigned from my job with 3 sick and 1 personal holiday unused. That’s a total of 32 hours I was expecting to collect on my last paycheck according to my original manager but when I brought it up to HR they told me that has never been a separation of employment policy. I was counting on that money to pay bills until I could find another job. I would have taken that time off if I knew I wasn't going to get paid for it. Is there anything I can do to get paid for time that I’ve already earned?
