Pay for Pre-approved Vacation Upon Layoff

If my employer provides written approval for a specific vacation request and then I am laid off a couple of weeks prior to the vacation period, can the approval be construed as an implied contract to pay for the vacation time?

breach of contract

It will be tough to prove that the approval for vacation constitutes a contract. You should consult a local attorney and have the attorney review the written approval to see if it constitutes a contract.
