In most states they do not have to pay out unused vacation or sick time at termination.

If your employer offered accumulated paid vacation time as a benefit of your employment, it is considered under Federal law to be considered an "earned" benefit. If you have any accumulated paid vacation time on the books at the time you either voluntarily terminate or are terminated, the employer legally has to pay you for that time. You do not have to submit anything in writing. It is not anything you even have to verbally request. It should have been included in your final paycheck.
I'd go back to HR where you worked and tell them exactly what I've stated above. This is a Federal law and they have no choice.
If forced, then proceed to Sonic corporate and file a written complaint. If no results, then go to your state labor commission and file a complaint with them. The longer they drag this out, the worse it will become for them, as they may end up liable for up to three times the amount you were denied.
Let me know how it goes.

i believe that if you acrued vacation time, you are entitled to it by law. call the labor board.

there are some states that consider vacation as wages earned and must be paid upon separation, unfortunate AL is not one of them, it has nothing to do with Federal Law as some HR people believe,

This the state of AL website which tells you what you can do if anything, it is about halfway down regarding vaction payouts in your state

in Canada, you are entitled to vacation pay, yes, they suggest you put it in writing, and no matter what they cannot keep it from you!

They should have paid it out in one lump cheque upon termination of your employment...if I were you, I'd look into your labour laws and how you go about getting what's yours.

Some businesses require written notice of your intent to take a vacation, or request vacation pay. However, if they are now denying you monies owed, take your most recent pay stub to the employment bureau; they will help go after the company to pay up.

Can the Employer keep my vacation pay after I leave the company?
Vacation pay is considered a fringe benefit of the company and is not a required payment by law. It is left up to the employer whether they offer the employee fringe benefits such as severance, vacation, annual leave, sick leave & bonus pay. The only exception would be something written in the company handbook stating that the employee will be given these benefits.

Aren't you glad you don't live in some socialist left wing state like California where employers have to at least keep their promises and give you what you've earned? Vote Republican if you like this.
