Paid Time off

  • To be eligible for paid time off (PTO), an employee must work full-time, which is defined as more than 30 hours per week, per 40-hour workweek.
  • Employees earn paid time off at their greatest eligible accrual rate.
  • PTO accruals are prorated according to the employee’s full-time equivalency (FTE)**.
  • PTO cannot be used until it is earned.
  • Paid time off hours are not available until the final day of the pay cycle.
  • PTO accruals begin on the first of the month, following the month of hire.
  • PTO accruals are capped on the final payroll of the calendar year.
  • Full-time employees (40 hours per week) may carry over a maximum of 56 PTO hours into the next calendar year.
  • Carry-over rates are prorated according to the employee’s full-time equivalency of a standard 40-hour workweek.
  • PTO accrued and unused, in excess of an employee’s carry-over rate, is forfeited at the end of the year.
  • Part-time positions are not eligible for paid time off.
  • Temporary positions are not eligible for paid time off.
  • Employees on a leave of absence without pay on the final day of the pay period cannot accrue paid time off.
