    This sounds like something that is going to vary with every company's policy. You are best off asking your HR. – David K Jan 31 at 19:32

It varies state by state, but in California, vacation pay is considered earned compensation, and will be cashed out to you when you separate from your employer.

For clarity, sick pay is is not considered earned compensation and there is no legal requirement for the employer to pay for sick hours.
