Generally, yes. An employer can put reasonable restrictions on the use of paid time off to suit the needs of the business. For example, some factories close for a certain month of the year, and require all employees to take vacation during the plant shut-down. Other employers do the opposite, allowing vacation to be taken any time other than a certain period, such as the busy season for the employer.

The caveat is that the employer probably cannot so restrict the use of paid time off so as to make it impossible for those days to be used.
