un-paid vacation vs holiday pay

The question is this - a employee has only three (paid) vacation days left for the year. But the employee put in for four days of vacation - that falls in between Xmas and New Years. Should this employee be paid for only one holiday or for both. The fourth day will be un-paid - because of no paid time left.

     Generally, if your company offers paid holidays, the holidays should be paid holidays and all other working days in which the vacation request was made for should be counted as vacation per their available balance.  If there are 4 working days in which the vacation was submitted for but they only have 3 vacations in their bank then they would have one day without pay.  Hope this helps!
