More details to this question:
When I quit my job of almost 10 years- I gave less than 2 weeks notice. I turned in all uniforms and badges required. I was notified I would not receive the 159 hours of vacation pay as I was now considered fired by the company handbook and under that status I would not receive the vacation pay hours I had accrued. Can I sue them for these wages not received?

If the company handbook says vacation pay will be paid out then you are entitled to that pay if you resigned and the handbook says she would be paid. After you gave your notice of resignation and then the company said you were fired does not and should not to get your entitlement to the vacation day because you had already resigned
