I had unused sick time when I left my employer, can I receive payment for this time?

The employer is required to pay fringe benefits in accordance with written contract or written policy, if the company policy has a pay-out provision which states that unused time will be paid to you when you separate your employment, then the employer would be obligated to pay you for the unused time.

The employer would not be legally obligated to pay you for unused time if the company policy does not address the issue.
