					This is a policy that outlines when employees can receive Paid Time Off (“PTO”). Under
PTO policies, employees can take time off work without providing justification. This
specific policy does not grant PTO days to temporary employees and requires
permanent employees to work a specified amount of time before becoming eligible for
PTO. This policy should be used by small businesses or other entities that want to
establish a consistent and uniform PTO policy for their employees.
