Paid Time Off (PTO) – The PTO Bank gives eligible employees paid time that may be used for vacation, holidays, appointments, funeral/bereavement time, short-term illness, FMLA for a parent, family military leave and personal time to do the things they enjoy. Excluded from the PTO Bank are hours utilized for civic/jury duty and military leave.
All employees accrue PTO based on hours worked, with a maximum accrual of 240 hours. New employees begin accruing PTO upon employment, but may not use PTO until after 90 days of employment. PTO may be used in increments of a tenth of an hour.
All PTO time must be pre-approved by the supervisor and will be dependent upon other leave requested in the department as well as the departmental workload.
The amount of PTO available will appear on the ADP HR portal. The maximum accumulation of PTO is 240 hours. PTO cannot be used before it is accrued and may not be utilized over and above the employee’s regular schedule.
PTO is used to cover holidays. A non-exempt employee who works the actual holiday will be paid at a rate of 1.5 times his or her base wage for the hours worked on the actual holiday (double time for Christmas Day.) In the event a shift covers part of a non-holiday and a holiday, the employee shall be paid regular time for the non-holiday portion of their shift.
