You generally need to have extended time off pre-approved. If you do not get pre-approved and you just take off, you may be deemed to have abandoned your job. Abandoning your job would disqualify you from unemployment compensation. Does that answer your question?
The recourse then would be to sue them for the vacation time under a breach of contract and fraudulent inducement theory. It would probably be more economical for the teaches to combine their claims together for a lawsuit.
There's a distinction in your case that the employer, you are alleging, misled you to believe the end date was much later than that...the inference being that they defrauded you all from being able to use it.
Three years for a fraud claim. Once the entity does what is called a "wind down" there isn't much of a chance of chance of recovery. It is essentially like a bankruptcy action where there are limited assets for the creditors to collect from. Even then, you'll have to at least have you lawsuit filed at the time of wind down.
