I have 3 vacation days left and quite because she cut my hours again to 9 hrs. for the 2 days. Should my vacation pay be based on the 8 hr. days I worked for the 8 years or can they just pay me for the 9 hrs they had scheduled me for. I used my vacation days as my notice when I resigned.

The amount of time to which you are entitled is based upon the employer's policy of accrual of vacation days. The PA law states that if you accrued vacation then that iis based upon the hours or days accrued and the employer would pay it out as wages at the rate you were at when you left employment. Thus, if you accrued your vacation time in the increment of "days" and your day changed from an 8 hour to a 4 hour day (for example) then you would get paid for the 4 hour day for those vacation days (of course most employers grant vacation time by hourly accural and under the law they must pay you in PA for any vacation hours you have accrued but have not taken at the tme of your termination of employment.
