I'm going to refer to my post above, #4.

Which says: If time off has been approved, and you do not have paid vacation days available, then you should be able to take them, but as unpaid days.

What is wrong with that.?

I think that is a good suggestion and I will inquire about it. Thanks.

Give me a hint how Not to stress about it and let go considering that I have vacations booked, tickets paid for, friends from Europe coming to visit...:shrug:

That part's easy... just tell yourself: this too shall pass; life goes on; could be worse; etc. We've probably all been there. Some people find destructive ways to deal with it while others figure out a saner way. Hope things work out for you, remember stressing doesn't solve the problem and may be a health risk.

Thanks. This helps. I was looking for suggestions how to resolve my dispute and how to cope. Maybe "how to cope" should have been my question to begin with.

How to cope?

Believe that you will take vacation as planned and that worst case will be unpaid time off. Swing a bit extra into savings as you go along to cushion that blow.

And, yes, don't forget that there are way worse problems you could have!!

Finally, don't ever stress about vacations. They are for DE-STRESSING!!!

Clarification - as I stated earlier, I was offered cash out option for 5 days in May 2009 and the proceeds were transferred to Deferred Comp/retirement savings. I was new to the job and was not able to take vacation days yet.
I made Payroll aware of not having this reflected on my pay stab, but was told not to worry about it and consider their numbers to be valid after I tried to discuss it with them for the third time in July 2010. I am sure I am not the only one in the whole unit, but looks to me like I am the only one taking vacations (not just long weekends like many of my colleagues ).

I'm feeling sympathetic now. If they told you to go by their numbers, which you did, I'd go have a heart to heart talk with them. There's something in law called "detrimental reliance.". When you rely on something that somone tells you, and it ends up detrimentally impacting you because they were wrong, it becomes their problem. Not sure if I'd present it to them as a legality but certainly the concept.

They should work with you to make this right since you did nothing other than what they told you to do. Even if they just paid you for three of the five days, that's better than nothing.
