Vacation pay laws vary by state jurisdiction. In which state is the school located?
Do you have an employee handbook or policy manual that provides rules for vacation benefits?
If yes, does the handbook/manual contain a disclaimer, with wording something like: "Nothing in this handbook is to be interpreted as a contractual right of employment. Employer retains the right to terminate any employee at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all, and without further liability"?
