To be sure AZ law controls in this situation because where you, the employee, are located determines jurisdiction. AZ however, does not have a law that mandates payout of accrued vacation at termination. As such, it is a matter of policy/contract that the employer is controlled by. In other words, only if the employer affirms in its policy (such as a handbook or contract to you) that accrued vacation is to be paid out to employees in your circumstance, would they owe you the pay for unused but accrued time off.
