As an employee, you will normally be entitled to four types of paid days off. The total number of paid days off depends on your employer. Typical ranges are provided below.
Some companies allow you to convert your unused sick days to cash. This option may apply to personal days and even to vacation days at some companies. If you don't use the days, you can get paid for them instead. To learn about a company's conversion policies, inquire with its human resource office.
