Can I use my vacation/ sick leave during my 2 week notice at a company I’ve been at for 8 months?

Ask hr or the accounting manager that does payroll

Sick and Vacation days will depend on your manager. They will let you use the Vacation days or pay the days instead.
Sick, I would say no.

Why no to sick days?

Because they are meant for when you are sick?

Lol nice one

I’d put in for the time off before you give your notice… but generally speaking, I’d say no. They would expect you’re working the last two weeks to tie up loose ends, transfer work to other people, etc. And sick leave, not unless you came down with something. Guess it all depends if you care how many bridges you will burn.

I had the time off approved before my notice because I wasn’t sure when i would get the offer. I didn’t do much the last week of my 2 weeks and it wasn’t a big deal that I took off.


YOu have to ask. Some places will let you and some will not.
