Loss of vacation and holiday time from employer

I had previously earned 2 weeks paid vacation + 3 paid holidays from my employer. The store I work in was sold to another company and now I am told I no longer have any vacation time or holiday time because the new owners have different policies. Is this legal? I am still working for the same manager and at the same store which is still under the same name.

vacation pay

It would seem that the prior owner terminated your employment with that entity when it sold the business, and thus the prior owner should have paid you the vacation you had accrued. You can file a claim against the prior owner with the Massachusetts Attorney General's office.
