  • Change in Benefits Package New York

    When I joined the company the job pack said that an employee with over six years of employment will be entitled for 4 weeks of vacation. last year , the boss changed the Benefits Package without telling anybody or consulting with the employees , and now it saying that an employee with over six years of employment will get only 15 days - is this legal?

    Changing the benefits package is legal. Whether or not it is enforceable in your state without notification is something only a NY attorney, who has read all the applicable documentation, can say.

    BTW, if I had a dollar for every time an employee complained that I had not notified him of some policy or benefit or change thereto, and I was able to reach into a drawer and pull out an acknowledgement, signed by the employee, of the policy, benefit or change, I could retire.
    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.
