The first pay period following the completion of two years of continuous employment from the employee's effective date of hire, a part-time employee will begin earning PTO at the rate of .0461538 of an hour for each hour in pay status, excluding overtime hours. PTO must be taken in one-hour increments. Only PTO earned and reported on the paycheck stub may be used.

PTO is to be scheduled in advance and at a time agreeable to the supervisor and in accordance with the needs of the department. At its sole discretion, the university reserves the right to assign an employee's available PTO balance toward time off.

Holidays recognized by the university are not counted as part of PTO. Extra pay in lieu of PTO is not allowable. PTO is accrued through the last day worked by the employee, regardless of the effective date of resignation.
