    I am buying an existing business with 2 employees. One employee used to get more vacation days than the other. I'm not sure if this is because she worked there longer or what, but since they are both being hired by me and starting off fresh, am I allowed to give one employee more vacation days per year than the other? Thanks.

    I have moved your post into its own thread. For future reference, please do not post new questions in old threads as it makes it very confusing for the responders.

    Yes, you may give different amounts of vacation to different employees. The law does not require that everyone be treated exactly the same, only that any differences not be based on a characteristic protected by law.
    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.
