    Florida is not my state so this will be a little "soft".
    - FL has next to nothing in the way of state specific labor law (other then a higher then federal MW) and does not really enforce what few laws it does have.
    - It is generally legal to reduce wage rates on a go forward basis only.
    - Vacation is complicated. FL does not require employers to provide vacation at all, and my understanding has basically no rules requiring the employer to follow their own vacation rules. However there is a possibility that if you have a written vacation policy that the old policy might rise to the level of an enforceable contract. You would have to have a local attorney review the actual documents to find out.
