by virtue of the financial tool called "bankruptcy" it is meant that you need protection from all creditors and those liabilities of your business. It's probably one of the reasons that the company needs help. Technically you could hire counsel to force your rights as employees but I can tell you terms of fallout and who's gonna get their money first, employees are low on the totem pole. All the other creditors will have their claims satisfied first, read more about Enron- they are going through the same thing.

Do employees get paid vacation time in chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 should not affect your vacation time. In fact, it probably falls under the employment non-discrimination clause of the Bankruptcy Code, which prohibits current & potential employers from taking any action against you due to bankruptcy. If your vacation is paid as part of your regular pay, your withholding should continue just as if you were working. If you get a separate check for the vacation, discuss it with your trustee--especially if it's paid out like a bonus.
