If I have to close my business and lay off employees, do I have to pay out their PTO?

FAQ Answer

In North Dakota, generally, PTO which is earned and available for an employee’s use must be paid out upon “separation” from employment.  If an employer lays off employees for an indefinite period of time, or with no expectation of bringing some or all of its employees back at a certain date, PTO should be paid out to the employee.
