Is Unlimited Paid Time Off A Trap?

My company just switched from X-days-per-year policy to unlimited vacation, and no one is happy about it, including managers.

In California, there’s the added twist that employment law classifies vacation time as compensation, and companies are required to pay out those days when you leave — but only if you get a set allotment annually. Since we no longer do, one of the few ways for us to get a check has literally been taken away.
