Workers on Disability Forced to Burn Vacation?

June 8, 2007: Thanks to a lawsuit by a Roadway Teamster, workers who are off drawing disability pay and using Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) time should no longer be forced to use up their vacation time. An employee should now have the option to take the vacation pay, or save the accrued vacation time.

But Yellow Freight doesn’t recognize the decision by the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. They insist that they will continue to make Teamsters exhaust their vacation time. The IBT Freight Division issued a statement to the effect that they intend to enforce this improvement.
