Paid Time Off (PTO)

Paid time off (PTO) is an all-purpose time-off plan for management and SEIU employees to use for vacation, personal business, and absences due to illness or injury. PTO accrual rates are based on length of service and are prorated for part-time employees (see chart below for accrual rates). Employees may accrue up to a maximum of two times their annual accrual.
