Vacation time may not be used in advance of hours accrued.
The monthly vacation accrual rates for full-time employees are as follows, based on of service:
Introductory Employee (Hired after June 1 of the fiscal year): * During the first incomplete (less than 12 months) fiscal year of eligible service the new employee is entitled to accrue vacation time at a rate of 5.84 hours or 6.67 hours per month. New employees whose first day of work falls on a day other than the first day of that month will be eligible to accrue vacation time the first day of following month.
Upon voluntary termination of employment, full time employees may be paid unused vacation time that has been accrued through the last full month worked. Part time employees may be paid a maximum of 10 days (40 hours) of unused vacation time provided the time had accrued through the last full month worked.

How to Accrue Vacation Time (with Pictures) - wikiHow
Specify the categories of employees who are eligible to accrue and use paid vacation leave; i.e. , temporary, or employees. As with sick leave, explain how your company defines "full-time" and "part-time".Once an employee has earned vacation time, it cannot be taken away by the employer. California courts and the state Labor Code specifically prohibit so-called “use it or lose it” vacation policies that cause employees to forfeit earned vacation time if it is not used by a certain date. Employers cannot require their employees to forfeit already accrued vacation for any reason—once the employee has earned vacation time, it is his or hers to use as they wish.While employers in California are not required to provide their employees with paid vacation, nearly all employers choose to implement some form of vacation policy. Under California law however, vacation time is actually a form of wages, which are progressively earned by the employee each day that he or she works. So, for instance, an employee such as yourself who earns two weeks (or 80 hours) of vacation each year actually accrues approximately 0.30 hours of vacation time each work day.Vacation accruals, that is, the actual receipt of vacation time benefit itself rather than the rate at which an employee accumulates the benefit, is not usually tied to seniority. For example, a person returning from three years of service may have passed a time benchmark where that person is entitled to build vacation at an increased rate (e.g., from one week a year to two weeks per year), but that person would not return to find three years back vacation waiting.
