We have a contract for services "Labor." We won the follow-on contract. Our CPA told us that we cannot start the new contract with a negative balance, i.e. carry-over of leave from the old contract. Can we legally truncate the leave on the old contract. We have a combination of Leave-n-Sick Leave called Paid Time Off (PTO). Company policy #211210 is as follows:K. Payment of Unused PTO Leave. An IDR employee will receive a lump-sumpayment for any unused PTO leave accumulated up to the time when theyterminate employment from IDR subject to the following conditions:1. Accumulated PTO leave balance (indirect hours) combined with thecurrent contract year direct work hours do not exceed IDR's annualstandard of 2080 hours, which includes direct labor hours, PTO leavehours, and holiday hours; unless the contract client provides foradditional hours beyond the standard of 2080 hours.2. Accumulated PTO leave balances shall be deleted at the time of contracttermination under the premise that funding for the contract hasterminated.3. The company's standard equivalent for sick leave of 40 hours shall bededucted from accumulated PTO leave balances under the premise thatsick leave is the last remaining leave in the PTO leave account, andunused sick leave is deleted.4. Negative balances in the PTO leave account shall be deducted from theemployee's final payroll check.5. Positive balances in the PTO leave account shall be paid in accordancewith the employees' rate of pay at the time of termination if theemployee's position still is being funded by the contact client; less 40hours of sick leave under the premise in paragraph K.3. above.Accordingly, positive balances under 40 hours at the time of terminationwill be truncated.
