Unless you have a union agreement or employment contract that guarantees you holiday pay, such pay is discretionary. This means that your employer can give it to you or not. Additionally, once you give a 2 week notice you can be let go immediately; your employer is not obliged to give you the 2 weeks. Therefore if you push for this pay you may be discharged now and lose the pay for tose weeks,.
