(KSL News) -- A judge today ruled against five state employees suing over the pay out of unused sick leave.
The employees claimed a new state law barring the conversion of unused sick leave into health coverage or payment at retirement constituted a breach of contract.
However, the judge ruled employees don't actually have a contract with the state until they retire so their claims were void.
The case is exepcted to be appealed to the state Supreme Court.
