Your Employer provides all "Full-Time Regular" employees with a set amount of paid personal days per calendar year, to be used for sick or personal time. On January 1st of each year, all eligible employees will receive personal days according to the charts listed below. All personal days must be used prior to the end of the calendar year. Newly hired employees receive prorated personal days, depending upon their month of hire.
Note: There may be variations from company to company as to how personal time and holiday time is allotted and calculated.
Non-exempt (hourly) employees may use paid personal time in minimum increments of a full hour.
Exempt (salaried) employees must use personal time in at least half-day increments.
All eligible employees may begin to use paid personal time off after successfully completing ninety (90) days of employment.
To take a paid personal day, employees should request advance approval from their supervisors. Requests will be granted based upon a number of factors, including business needs and staffing requirements.
In the event the employee is using paid personal time as sick time, the supervisor must be contacted on the day of the absence.
An employee whose status changes from full-time to part-time is no longer eligible to use personal days/time and no credit or payment is given for accrued but unused days.
An employee whose status changes from part-time to full-time is eligible for use of personal days/time based based on the date of the status change and the schedule above.
Personal days do NOT rollover at year-end.
Unused personal days are not eligible for payout upon termination.
