Time Off and Leaves of Absence
Sick, Vacation and Season Days
There are two separate programs for University employees regarding sick, vacation and season days.
1) The "Paid Time Off" program (PTO) currently covers almost all Health System employees with the exception of a few bargained-for staff. The PTO program combines vacation, sick and season days into one account.
2) The "Vacation Time" program, which has separate policies for vacation, sick and season days. Employees who are funded by a non health system University account may be placed on this program.
