Legal Question

Asked on: 7/11/13, 7:49 pm

I was fired from my job on a Monday (no official reason given) and sent home that morning. I spoke to the HR rep and she told me I would be paid for the rest of that week, I would get no severance, but could cash out my remaining PTO days. When I received my final paycheck, I noticed that instead of the 19 I expected, they paid me for 15. When I contacted the HR department, I was told they applied the other four days to the rest of that week. In effect, they "paid" me for that week, but out of my own vacation. This seems a little unprofessional to me, and unethical at best. I never authorized those days, did not request them and did not expect this. Do I have any recourse in the matter?
