Paid Time Off (PTO)

Full-time and part-time associates working at least 20 hours per week accrue PTO each pay period, according to position and length of service. For example, full-time associates (40 scheduled hours per week) with less than five completed years of service accrue 25 PTO days. You may carry time over from year to year, however, once the maximum or cap is reached, additional accruals stop until time is used. New associates are eligible to use PTO after 90 days.

Years of Service Accrual Rate Annual Accrual* Maximum
0 through 5 0.0962 per hour paid/worked 25 days (200 hours) 31 days (248 hours)

* Annual accrual shown is based on a 1.0 FTE.
Note: PTO accrual schedule and usage eligibility may differ for selected associates, for example physicians and residents.

Nemours also offers an annual PTO Buyback option that allows eligible associates to sell a certain number of unused PTO hours.

Volunteer Time Off (VTO)

Full-time associates who have completed the 90-day evaluation period receive eight hours of paid Volunteer Time Off (VTO) each year to use for community service activities (four hours for part-time associates). Please note: VTO plans may vary for physicians and residents.
