Changed to PTO in 2015 But didn't get credit for vacation earned in 2014. Is this legal?

Company policy was no vacation earned for the first 12 months of employment. Company changed to PTO in January of 2015. Employees who were employed more than 1 year didn't receive any credit for there 2014 earned vacation when the company switched to PTO in 2015. Everyone started out at 0 PTO hours in 2015. We lost all of 2014 earned vacation time is this legal?

Credit for vacation time is a matter of the agreement between the employer and employees. Pennsylvania and federal law does not mandate vacation accrual.
