How to do leave & get all owed payouts

I have been on ‘vacation’ for the last week and a half (actually just snapped & reached my boiling point at work) and have ultimately decided to leave Amazon all together. That being said, how can I logistically not go back to work/go back to work for the least amount of time while ensuring I get my proper payout for remaining vacation time? What are the necessary next steps and how do I best handle with my manager?

Anyone in HR?

    You’ll get paid for all accrued vacation, that’s not something you have to work around, it’ll just happen.

      I thought I read that you have to give X amount of days notice in order to receive it?

      Nope. It's generally a law in many states that you get payout regardless. You earned the money, so you should be paid for it.

      I’ve heard three days notice is required to get vacation payout as well
