Employees hired to work at least 20 or more hours per week, begin accruing Paid Time Off (PTO) from the first day of employment. Paid Time off encompasses time for vacation, holiday, sick and personal use.
We earn PTO dependant on hours worked amd your salary. There is no holiday pay. They force you to use your PTO for holidays.
You start out with a fair amount of earned time you're eligible to get, but doesn't increase for 5 years.
Great time off package. As a CRA I get about a month worth of ET every year.
4 weeks for residency (although we have far less time off during the working year)
Lahey uses the Earned Time system. Each year, you get a little more time earned per hour worked. Unfortunately, you have to use that time when you are sick or recovering from surgery, as well. There should definitely be a different system in place that is fair to the people who do not have enough time to take off for important dates or medical emergencies.
Paid time off and vacation pay are combined in a "bank" of paid time off and is available for use at employee discretion.
You will never get approval from your Manager or Director. Only if you beg for it.
