Is it legal for my employers to deduct sick days from my vacation?

I have a friend that is here on a work visa and has been working for this family that has been treating her unjustly. The family has been promising her, her paper, but the lawyer they hired (which happens to be a friend of the family) has been telling her that her papers are on the way, for over 10 years now. She just recently found out that it’s all been a lie, the lawyer never even looked at her paperwork. the lawyer has her money that she paid with no results. Not only this but they work her over 12 hours a day, plus they deduct any sick days she may have from her vacation.
