If the company has a policy to pay out accrued but unused vacation time and you satisfy the policy to receive payment then yes, the employer must pay it out. If there are conditions in the policy, such as giving two weeks notice, and you did not satisfy those conditions then the employer is not obligated to pay it out.

If you qualify under the policy then the payment usually occurs 1-2 pay cycles after you quit. If you do not receive it then you should contact HR to discuss. You may need to file a wage claim for payment. See more at http://www.kielichlawfirm.com/employment-law/
