My company is forcing me to take four vacation days before the end of the year. This worries me. How worried should I be?

Some background: California. I am salaried, and the highest-paid non-manager in my department. We recently lost a major client, and the new clients that I trained to handle have not yet materialized.
Everyone in the department except the manager is being required to take vacation days if they are not already.
My buddy at another company was required to take vacation days, and a few months later his company closed his department and laid him off. I like working for my firm and don't want to make this an HR or legal issue for a number of reasons.
How worried should I be regarding my job security? Anecdotes, prior experience, and an upper management perspective welcome. Request any clarifications at firstname.lastname@example.org
