The Colorado Supreme Court recently (June 14, 2021) issued a landmark ruling that an employer must pay an employee’s earned but unused vacation pay upon separation from employment. The ruling goes even further to provide that any agreement or policy forfeiting unused vacation pay is void as a matter of law. Like many states Colorado law does not mandate that an employer provide vacation pay. However, like many other states, Colorado law is now clear that once an employer chooses to offer vacation pay benefits, they cannot be forfeited once earned.
