[Company name]’s PTO policy allows employees to take paid time off (PTO) provided that the employee schedules and takes time off in a manner that ensures that all Company needs are met and the employee maintains satisfactory performance and productivity levels.
Employees receive [10 days, 15 days] of Paid Time Off (PTO) per year, which can be used for such needs as vacation, personal or family illness, and other personal reasons. Eligible workers must regularly work at least [30 hours, 40 hours] a week. Employees working less than [30 hours, 40 hours] a week are not eligible for PTO.
Your PTO starts accruing immediately [on day one, after two weeks, after 60 days] of your employment, and you can start taking your PTO after your first [week, 90 days, six months]. You [can, cannot] use the time you haven’t accrued yet. You will earn [one, two] additional day(s) per year after your [first year, second year] with the Company, with a cap at [20 days, 25 days] overall.
You [do, do not] need to use PTO when taking time off work for any reason, and PTO can be taken in increments as low as [one hour, four hours].
If you want to use PTO, send a request [to your manager, through our HRIS]. If your manager or HR approves, you are permitted to take your leave. You do not have to specify a reason for requesting PTO.
Please note that a request for PTO on a particular date(s) may be denied should a determination be made by your manager in order to continue business operations and to provide appropriate coverage. Approval will not be given for PTO days under certain circumstances (e.g., where the employee is on a performance improvement plan, after the employee has provided notice of their intent to leave the Company and/or if the employee has given two weeks’ notice and requests PTO for the last two weeks of employment).
We understand that unscheduled absences occasionally happen; however, when possible, PTO should be scheduled at least [one week, two weeks] in advance. Nothing in this policy shall infringe upon an employee’s right to take statutorily mandated Paid Sick Leave in accordance with state and local law.
You [can, cannot] transfer any remaining PTO to the next year. We encourage you to use your time off throughout the year.
If you leave our company, we may compensate accrued PTO with your final paycheck according to state and local law. When the law doesn’t have provisions, we [will, will not] compensate accrued leave to employees who were not terminated for cause.
We operate between [9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays]. You may come to work at any time between [9 a.m. and 11 a.m.], depending on your team’s needs.
Some departments may work after hours, too [(e.g. customer support, shipping.)] If you work in these departments, you will follow a shift schedule as needed.
