Vacation reimbursement

I am considering leaving my job. If I do, is my company required to pay me for unused vacation time (as in California)? Or do I lose that time if I don't use it before I leave?

Vacation Pay

Generally, under New York law, when an employee leaves an employer, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, the employee is entitled to the vacation pay, because that is considered earned. The same would not be true for sick leave.
