Paid Time Off
Quality Support recognizes the value of paid time off (PTO) for employees to be away from work for vacation, personal days or other reasons. Employees will earn PTO according to the following schedule, which changes on the anniversary date (example: a hire date of 1/1/2018 means the 5th anniversary date is 1/1/2023):
|Length of service||Accrual rate per hour paid||Maximum annual accrual||Maximum annual carry-over|
Date of hire through end of year 5, on the 5th anniversary
|0.0577||120 hours||400 hours|
|Start of year 6 through end of year 15, on the 15th anniversary||0.0769||160 hours||400 hours|
|Start of year 16 and continuing thereafter||0.0962||200 hours||400 hours|
If earned, available PTO is not used by the end of the calendar year, employees may carry unused time forward to the next calendar year, up to the 400-hour maximum indicated above. If an employee has taken PTO more than their earned accrual (unaccrued leave/negative PTO balance) at the end of the year, he or she will be required to repay any such amounts Accrued, unused PTO is paid out at termination.
