Kinda SUCKS. I know that’s not the most professional explanation, but it emulates the reaction I’ve had to the State’s vacation policy. You gets 4hrs PTO & 4hrs sick every two weeks. You also get interrogated as to its use, and are expected to save up 40-80hrs of each before using any time (which takes 6-10mo to do). Big thumbs down for their vacation policy.
Being government all federal holidays become state holidays with one additional state holiday (founder's day). The longer the tenure the more vacation leave is accrued each pay period. Sick leave is accrued separately at the rate of 4 hours p/ pay period.
The time off does increase at 5, 10, 15 and 20 years. Sick time is separate so not PTO.
use or lose sucks for those of us that work and are not sick often. odd to penalize the working group rather than the ones that are sick or take vacation a lot.
Awesome, you get 12 days a year and after 5 years you get 19 a year. Sadly not enough money to expend in vacations.
The State of Utah provide paid leave for most holidays and generous vacation leave.
You have to build up your time off, except for paid holidays which you have to work the whole pay period to get full credit for. They don't expect you to use any of your vacation or sick time in the first year and you are chastised if you do, even though it's available.
Can't afford it because of my ridiculously low hourly wage.
