We accrue vacation time based on hours worked, do I get paid for it?

I work in the state of Florida. I accrue vacation time based on hours worked. When I took the job, the vacation time was part of the sales pitch, Now I have 6 weeks of vacation accrued and no way to take it, as my job will not let me take that much time off. When I leave the company, will they be required to pay me for the accrued vacation time?

We have no employee handbook, the company has tried 3 times to put one out and pulled it back every time.

Most likely yes. Do they have a written policy on payment of vacation pay after your departure from the company? I have blogged on this issue, check out my employee rights blog at www.takethisjobnshoveitblog.com or my website www.behrenlaw.com
