My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: California
My friend's employer offers 10 days of paid vacation time up to year four, and 15 days of paid vacation time after five years of employment. She has been working at the company for a little over five years, last year she was told by her supervisor that she was entitled to 15 days of vacation time for 2014. Eight/seven months later, her supervisor retracted and said that b/c my friend started as a part-time employee, that she was not entitled to 15 days vacation yet, rather 10 days. Because she already had planned vacation time, they agreed that she could take time as unpaid. As planned she took 22 hours off in Oct 2014. However, because there was an oversight on either the supervisors part or on payrolls part (not sure which one), now three pay periods later, she was told that they are going to deduct 22 hours of pay on her next paycheck.
Isn't this unlawful? Does the employer’s action go against California labor law section 221?
