Dixon v. City of Malden, 464 Mass. 446 (2013): The city of Malden terminated the plaintiff in March 2007. At the time, the plaintiff had accrued fifty days of unused vacation time. The city did not pay him the unused vacation time on the date of termination, but continued the plaintiff’s salary and benefits for about three months. The plaintiff then sued for the unused vacation time under the Wage Act (M.G.L. Ch. 149, §§ 148 & 150).
