Can an employer force you to use vacation time for mandatory days off?

Question Details:

The doctor that I work for has us all still work when she is out of the office. Catch up time. But all of a sudden she is making the techs all take 4 days off and use there paid time off meaning they won't have any vacation or sick time by April. But only them no one else in the office. Can they do this?
