Customer Question
Our company recently merger...

Our company recently merger with another. The new company was handling the payroll for 6weeks or so then they posted the positions to which we all applied for. We were given an ROE stating the reason

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

We dont have an hr in the old company. And i sent that previous message before i was done .. important to know they stated the reason was the old company went bankrupt.... but that is not so! Even speaking with the old manager/owner, he said that the new company never asked him anything. We are intetested in meeping our accrued hours... are we 'up the creek'?

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Fill time

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Let me ask all the others (4total effected)

Thanks for your patience and I'm sorry for the delay. I re-read your scenario, but I'm not sure of your question; is your question whether your sick/vacation time will transfer over now that the company has been acquired?

I'm so sorry. I see that you are in Canada. This means that I have to opt out of this discussion, alert our moderators, and have them shift you to the Canadian website so a legal expert up north can help. Thanks so much and I apologize for the inconvenience.
