Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello: This is Attorney Phillips. Welcome to Justanswer! I will be assisting you today with your post.
I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Is there anything that can be done to stop this?
Response: Unfortunately no if you do not have employment agreement that guarantees you sick leave. This is because employers do not have any legal obligation to provide their employees with sick time. However, employers and employees can enter into agreement for fringe benefits including sick time and vacation pay. Once the agreement is signed, the employers cannot take back the accrued sick time. If the employers do, then employees can then file breach of contract case against the employers in Court to enforce the agreement.
In summary, if you do not have any employment agreement with the employer regarding the sick time, you do not have any recourse.
I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.
If you do not have any follow-up question(s), kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.
Thank you for your cooperation.
I didn't see a response to my reply to expert. So I am re-sending it. If the change from Xerox to ATOS and seniority, vacation and sick time and it has been over a year is that an agreement or contract? I do not see how they can take something that was given over a year ago.

Response 1: I did not receive your reply.

Response 2: It may be considered an implied agreement/contract depending on the terms of the transfer. So, you would have to check with your Human Resources Department as to terms of the transfer.
