Paid Time Off (PTO) for Part-time Staff

Part-time employees who are scheduled to work at least half-time 12 months during the calendar year are eligible for a maximum of two weeks of paid time off based on their normal schedule. During the first year of employment, the part-time employee does not receive any paid time off. On January 1 of any year, if the part-time employee has fewer than five months of service from the previous year, then the employee receives one week of paid time off for the current calendar year. If the employee has more than five months of service from the previous year, then the employee receives the equivalent of two weeks of paid time off for the current calendar year.

Part-time employees who are scheduled to work nine, ten, or eleven months and work at least half-time during those months are eligible for one week paid time off. These employees do not receive any paid time off during their first year of employment.

A part-time PTO eligible employee who becomes full-time is credited for prior part-time service in determining full-time vacation eligibility in the first year.  A full-time employee who transfers to part-time will be entitled to PTO based on their years of full time and part-time (PTO eligible) service combined.  This time will be credited from their full-time vacation accrual in the first year with any balance being paid in a lump sum.  The employee may transfer up to 1 additional week of vacation to PTO in lieu of payment.  In no case is the employee entitled to more time than that credited for full-time service in the year of the transfer.

If a staff member is absent for more than three (3) working days, they should contact the Office of Human Resources at (570) 941-7767.
