“I would like to know what the state of Michigan’s law is about what a companies responsibility on paying out Vacation Time Accrued is when any employee is terminated or leave. Or maybe there is a web site I can look this LAW up in?”

Generally speaking, companies are required to pay out all monies accrued and due to an employee when they leave the employment of the company, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, and they have a fairly short time within which to do this.

However, you should consult with a Michigan attorney, not only to confirm the time period, but to determine what your options are, and what leverage you have, if the company fails to meet their obligation. Such a consultation is usually free.
