Assuming your company uses the date of hire to determine when the paid holiday is updated, you could use a CASE() statement to calculate what the monthly accrual is for each person.
It might look like this:
Case(
   currentdate - startdate >= 365; .84;
   currentdate - startdate < 365 and currentdate - startdate > 90 ;    .55 ;
   currentdate - startdate < 30; 0;
  -1
)

Then, once per month you run a script which adds this amount to the person's vacation hour total, subtracts any time actually used, and uses the MIN() function to set the hours to the lower of the current total or the number 20, like this.

   CurrentHours = Min( CurrentHours; 20 )

Simply do the same thing for the sick time, using appropriate values there. The case statement will be simpler because you will only have to test for the one year.
