|A. Paid Time Off Hours (PTO)
Because we recognize the importance of time off in providing the opportunity for rest, recreation, and personal activities, PRO grants paid time off hours to its full-time employees. PTO accrues annually as of your anniversary date. The amount of PTO to which you are entitled depends on your length of service as follows:
New hires 40 hours at the start of employment
After 1 year uninterrupted full time service 80 hours
After 3 years uninterrupted full time service 120 hours
After 8 years uninterrupted full time service 160 hours
PTO can be used for personal time, vacation or other reasons including the following:
PTO can be rolled over and accumulated with a limitation. PRO reserves the right to “cash out” (pay the employee for accumulated hours) an employee’s PTO if PRO determines that an employee’s accumulated PTO is excessive.
B. Paid Time Off (PTO) Scheduling
Paid Time Off may be taken as weekly periods or as individual days as long as the periods chosen are approved in advance based on staffing requirements and other vacation requests. Staffing requirements dictate that no more than two (2) employees can be on paid time off simultaneously. You should submit PTO requests to management at least two (2) months before the date you wish your vacation to begin.
C. PTO Pay
If you wish to receive PTO pay at any time, you must email the Director of Administration with your request.
D. PTO for Terminating Employees
Employees terminating employment for any reason are entitled to payment for all accrued unused PTO hours.
PRO provides eight (8) hours of holiday pay to all full-time employees who have completed one year of uninterrupted service and all part-time/per diem employees who have completed 2,000 hours of uninterrupted service. This policy applies to the following holidays when you work at least seven (7) hours of that holiday. All holidays will begin and end at midnight unless otherwise noted:
To be eligible to receive holiday pay, you are required to work your regularly scheduled hours (if any) on the workday immediately preceding and the workday immediately following the holiday.
F. Part-Time Employees and Earned Sick Time.
As of July 1, 2015, part-time employees do not get PTO, but can accrue earned sick time at the rate of 1 hour for every 30 hours worked up to a maximum of 40 hours. A part-time employee can never use more than 40 hours of earned sick time in a calendar year. Accrual of earned sick time begins on the employee’s date of hire. Independent contractors do not accrue PTO.
Earned sick time may be used for the following purposes:
Use of earned sick time for other purposes is not allowed and may result in an employee being disciplined.
Employees may not use earned sick time if the employee is not scheduled to be at work during the period of use. An employee may not accept a specific shift assignment with the intention of calling out sick for all or part of that shift.
Earned sick time is not payable on termination of employment.
G. Voting Time
PRO encourages all employees to fulfill their civic responsibilities and to vote in all official public elections. Generally, your working hours are such that you will have ample time to cast your vote before or after working hours. However, if you find yourself with insufficient time to vote due to overtime work, etc., please discuss the matter with a supervisor. PRO complies with all applicable voting-time laws.
