Are there are state or Federal guidelines for mandatory
vacation in Florida.

Our company will be closing for the holidays and employees must use that one week as their paid vacation time off.

Federal or Florida state labor laws do not require companies to offer vacation time to employees. It is up to each individual company to decide on its own policies regarding vacation time. The only requirements for employers in Florida are if the policy state a specific number of days and they are not provided then the employee can take legal action to enforce the company to honor the policy. In addition, if the policy allows for vacation time to accrue, that accrued time needs to be paid upon termination if not used.
