Response: No, it is not legal to change the date of your hire. That would amount to falsification of document and that is illegal. However, under both federal and state laws, employers are not required to provide their employees with vacation. So, the number of weeks of vacation that you are granted are solely at the discretion of your employer. However, if your employer has written policy of granting its employees a number of weeks of vacation based on their hire dates and failed to do this in your case because your hire date has been fraudulently changed by the employer, then you can file complaint against the employer with Texas Workforce Commission.
