If you do get paid out, it's typically taxed above normal wages so take that into account.

Anyone know how much the payout is? Equal to your salary wages?

@P2 - Yes, paid out at your current hourly rate.

Current hourly billing rate charged to clients or calculated based on salary and assumed @ 40hr/week

Etiquette question - my company is flying me out to England in October for a week ( the week of the 3rd) and paying for my flights. I’ll be training new teammates and be in day long meetings the whole time. Is it a faux pas for me to use PTO and extend that Europe stay for a few days to explore London on my own time? Or since they’re flying me out and I have to get home anyway, is it ok?

When submitting resignation do you pro rate the number of holiday days you would have accrued? I have leave booked around time of resignation (of which 5 days is PY roll over) so wondering if I can add an additional 2 days leave to the date from which I'm counting back 30 days from ie 20 days normal notice 5 days PTO (starts Thursday) puts me 27 days post submitting notice (wed). Could I add 27/365x 25 day holiday allowance = 2 extra days of leave I can add.
