Vacation pay is subject to a two-year statute of limitations, if the agreement is oral, and a four-year statute of limitations if the agreement/policy is in writing. Church v. Jamison (2006) 143 Cal.App.4th 1568, 1577, 50 Cal.Rptr.3d 166, 171.

An written employment handbook is the same as a written agreement (four years).

The Division of Labor Standards Enforcement will follow the above-described law.

Hope this helps.
