PTO Policy

Paid Time Off (PTO) is an innovative benefit program that combines vacation, sick and personal
time into one bank of hours giving employees greater flexibility in the use of their time off. We
recognize that taking time away from work contributes to employees’ overall health and
wellness, and therefore, encourage employees to make use of the PTO they accrue. All paid
time, is earned during the course of a year, but may be available for use before it is earned
subject to supervisor approval and departmental need. Please note: all employee requests for
PTO require department managers’ and/or supervisors’ approval prior to the time off depending
on the scheduling and operational needs of the department. Unscheduled, last minute call outs
are subject to the notice requirements of the applicable attendance responsibility policy.

The terms of this policy shall be read in a manner consistent with applicable law, and in the
event of a conflict, the applicable law shall prevail. See also HR Policy 3.25 regarding the New
York State Paid Sick Leave Law and NYC Earned Safe and Sick Time Act (ESSTA)

NOTE: paid holidays, condolence days, marriage days, jury duty days, and military days shall
continue to be administered in accordance with existing policies and are not incorporated into
the PTO Program.
