Anyone ever put off using PTO days and instead “worked from home” during a planned vacation before they resigned in order to cash out the PTO later? I really don’t want to carry my work laptop when I leave on vacation, but the idea of cashing out the PTO when I end up leaving the job (not yet planned or official) is real nice.

Yeah most long weekends I’ll fly out after work Thursday and the work remote Friday

Of course, that is not an issue at all

I guess what I’m asking is - would you prioritize a potential $5k cash out or peace of mind of enjoying your vacation fully?

Can you negotiate a later start date with your new company and enjoy a vacation in between roles?

My in-laws were either talking all the time about random stuff or fighting between each other. Continuing…
