Owen v. Macy's, Inc., No. B207719

Trial court judgment holding that plaintiff was not unlawfully denied vacation pay when her employment ended is affirmed where: 1) the express written company policy forewarned new employees that their compensation package did not include paid vacation during their initial employment; and thus 2) plaintiff cannot claim any right to vested vacation during the initial employment because she knew in advance that she would not earn or vest vacation pay during this period.
