Tennessee doesn't require the pay out of unused vacation or PTO unless the employer specifically has a policy stating that they do so. If they have no policy, they don't have to pay it out.
If they do have a policy, they have to pay it out by the next regular pay day cycle following your termination or resignation, not to exceed 21 days after you are terminated or resign. So, if they had to pay it out based on company policy, they have until Friday, June 10th to pay it out (if that is your next regularly scheduled pay date following the resignation).
