We are a NJ company and we have an employee who works a 3

We are a NJ company and we have an employee who works a 3 day week (Tues, Wed, Thurs). Her last physical day at the office performing her job duties was May 4, 2017. On May 8, 2017, employee notified us via email that she was giving her 2 weeks notice however would not be in the office for the 2 weeks as she wanted to use her 2 weeks of vacation. She currently has 71.01 hours of accrued vacation available.Based on the above would the employees last day of employment be May 4th (actual last day of work), May 8 (date she emailed her resignation) or May 19 (the end of the 2 week work period when she was paid for her 2 weeks accrued vacation?Also, since she gave notice via email on May 8th do we need to reimburse her the health insurance deduction that was withheld from her May 10th check?If we use May 19th as her last (which was paid vacation) and she did not actually work, do we still include the 401k and health insurance deduction that would normally come out of her check?
