Paid Time Off (PTO)
In addition to paid holidays, the Company maintains a paid personal time off (PTO) program for regular full-time employees. This program combines vacation and sick leave benefits into a single bank of time. Temporary and regular part-time employees are not eligible for PTO benefits. The program is designed to respond to employees' needs for time off and allows eligible employees to receive wages while off work on vacation or due to personal illness or injury.
Length of Service
Amount of PTO Benefits Accrued
First 6 months of continuous employment
Second 6 months of employment and continuing thereafter
4.33 hours per pay period
There is no accrual during the first six months of employment. During the second six months of continuous employment, an employee who is scheduled to and does work 30 hours per week would normally accrue 6 1/2 working days of PTO.
In the second years of continuous employment and thereafter, an employee who is scheduled to and does work 30 hours per week would normally accrue 13 working days of PTO.
No PTO time may be taken until after completion of the first year of employment.
In accordance with the leave of absence policies set forth in this Handbook, PTO hours will not accrue during unpaid leaves of absence.
PTO time may be used in increments of two (2) hours unless otherwise required by law. You must schedule PTO with your Manager, Property Manager, or Regional Property Manager. PTO should be scheduled in advance to insure adequate coverage. Your supervisor/manager will communicate with their employees the specific timeframe needed when requesting PTO. PTO requests will be approved by your supervisor based upon a number of factors, including our business needs and staffing requirements.
You may utilize accrued PTO to receive compensation during an unpaid leave of absence.
You may not earn more than 26 days (208 hours) of PTO. Once this maximum is reached, all further accruals will cease. Your PTO accruals will resume after you have used some of your PTO and your accrued PTO has dropped below the maximum.
Employees who are unable to report to work due to an illness or injury should notify their immediate supervisor at the earliest possible time, but no later than the first hour after the start of the scheduled workday, and for each additional day of absence.
No employee will receive PTO benefits in lieu of taking time off, except upon termination of employment. Accrued PTO benefits that have not been used will be paid to employees at the time of termination of employment at the employee's final rate of pay at the time of separation.
Time off is paid on the basis of your base hourly rate, excluding premiums and overtime compensations, if any. Non-exempt employees should mark "PTO" on their time records.
If a holiday occurs during your PTO period, that day will not be counted as a PTO day.
