Paid Time Off

We offer a generous and flexible paid time off (PTO) benefit package that includes vacation time, personal time, holiday time, and sick time to use as needed and desired. Part-time and Full-time employees earn a percentage of hours worked towards PTO which increases after your years of service increase.

PRN employees (employees working 19 or less hours per week) and Temporary employees earn sick time only. Sick time is accrued at 1 hour per 30 hours worked.

PTO begins accruing on the first day of employment!

“N” time Accumulation for PRN and Temporary Employees:

At the beginning of employment in a PRN or Temporary position, employees will begin accruing “N” time at a rate of 1 hour for every 30 hours worked. “N” time will accrue up to a maximum accrual of 48 hours. Unused “N” hours are carried over from year to year up to 48 hours so they can be accumulated and used when needed. Employees will not accrue additional “N” time until the balance falls below 48 hours. Employees are not able to use more than 48 hours of “N” time in a year. “N” time is available for reasons 1-5 listed below in the policy.

“P” time Accrual for Full-time and Part-Time Employees:

“P” time combines traditional vacation and sick time plans into one flexible, paid time off program. This is accrued and documented using benefit code “P” and can be used for reasons 1-8 listed below in the policy.
