  • company policy Pennsylvania

    my company's policy handbook, which i signed accepting it's terms and acknowledging that i had received it upon hire, states that employees are entitled to earned vacation hours when they terminate their employment. however, there was an email distributed earlier this year which changed that policy. i was not given a new manual and was not asked to sign anything following this change. my question is, can the company change policies at will? and if so, is simply sending out an email/memo an appropriate method of changing that policy?

    There are no laws requiring employers to have handbooks and no laws regulating how and when they can change any handbooks they may have.
    I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

      Yes, they may legally change their policy using the method you describe.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
