I am a part-time employee at an organization in Virginia. I was told when I was hired that I would not receive benefits, and no benefits were listed in my employment contract. After I was hired, my HR department told me that I was eligible to accrue vacation hours, and so I did for one month (and I used some of those) until they realized they made an error and revoked all of my remaining accrued hours. What are my rights in this situation?

As your contract of employment apparently made no provision for such benefits
and your receiving them for a brief time apparently was the result of the employer's error, I would have to conclude that you necessarily have no rights nor viable recourse in this particular matter.
