Paid Time Off

BJC's paid time off (PTO) benefit combines vacation, holidays and sick days to provide you flexibility in managing your time away from work.

All regular full-time and part-time employees (who have 24 or more regularly scheduled hours per week) earn PTO each pay period. How much PTO you accrue, or accumulate, per pay period is based on length of service, position and how many hours you work each pay period. PTO carries over from year to year, and employees may accrue up to a maximum of 400 hours. More information on PTO can be found in HR Policy 4.01 on the HR Hub.
