A Salt Lake County woman has been charged with theft for allegedly cashing out 200 hours in vacation pay from her employer 160 more hours than she was allowed.
Prosecutors charged the 37-year-old woman with one count of third-degree felony on Monday in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court. If convicted, the woman faces a prison term of up to five years.
Court papers say the Murray woman worked as a payroll manager for B. Jackson Construction. The company allowed its employees 40 hours of vacation time, which could be taken as time away from work, or cashed out as pay.
