Pay for accrued vacation days after resignation

I recently left a company where I worked as a commission salesperson. I had four days of vacation time accrued. Now the company is telling me that because I left without giving them two weeks notice, I am not entitled to pay for the accrued vacation days.

No exceptions to vacation payment

They must pay you the accrued vacation days. There is no two-week notice requirement under Illinois law. If they do not pay you you need to file a claim with the Illinois Department of Labor within 180 days of your termination, or retain a private attorney who would be able to help you bring the claim, since attorneys' fees are recoverable in these types of wage cases, assuming a proper demand has been made.
