Paid Time Off
Paid Time Off (PTO) is an important part of the City's total compensation package. PTO provides time away from work for rest, relaxation, and personal purposes. It also provides a mechanism for partial pay protection during times of illness or incapacity.
Regular attendance at work is a critical component of meeting the service delivery, productivity, and efficiency goals of the City. Employees are expected to maintain regular, predictable attendance and to report to work on time except for time off approved under the following leave programs:
Full-Time Employees (Hired Prior to 1/1/2014 or with prior VRS service) - Employees assigned to full-time positions earn an array of paid time off based on the purpose of the absence.
Full-Time Employees (Hired On or After 1/1/2014 with no prior VRS service) - Non-sworn public safety employees assigned to full-time positions earn an array of paid time off based on the purpose of the absence.
Part-Time Employees (Hired Prior to 2012) - Employees assigned to part-time positions earn generic leave to be used for absences due to:
• Non-work-related illness or injury of less than a full work week
Leave for bereavement will be paid separately.
