What do I do if I am not being paid the vacation pay money that I am entitled to?

About 1 1/2 months ago I left my old job. My ex-employer isn’t paying me the vacation pay money I am owed. She said that she would have it transferred into my account, and never ended up doing so, and after that she screens my calls, ignores my texts, voice mails and phone calls. I had been employed there a month under a year. I have already filed a complaint with the labor board but it will not be attended to for about 8-12 weeks. What are my options.
