  • vacation/sick time due?

    the company, in PA, I worked for almost 16 years was acquired by a another company, recently. As of January 1, 2006, our vacation and sick time started over with my former employer. When the new company took over on 4/1//06 we lost a lot of time. Was my former company responsible to pay the employees their earned vacation time?

    Not unless there was a company policy or past practice of paying it out. PA law does not require the payout of earned but unused vacation time (I'm not aware of any state that requires the payout of unused sick time); it requires only that the employer follow their own policy.
    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.
