If you have accrued vacation days that you haven’t yet used when you quit or are fired, you may be entitled to be paid for that time.
In California, your final paycheck must include payment for all of your accrued vacation time (though not sick time). Even in states that don’t require the company to pay out vacation time in every case, an employer may have to cash out unused vacation if it has a policy or practice of doing so.
