Depends on a couple of factors. One, language in the employee handbook could touch on this and, two, if it is not accrued over time then you have no legal claim for it. Reach out to a lawyer to discuss in greater detail. If you have a legal claim for it, it may be one that comes with the ability to recover attorneys fees which could allow you to purse this through counsel with no expense to you. Best of luck.
