What does “protected” mean?
Protected PTO means that the employer has guaranteed that if you take this type of leave, you will get paid during that time. This differs from unpaid leave where the employer doesn’t guarantee that you will get paid during the time you’re taking off.
How do I calculate my PTO?
To find out how many PTO hours you have left, divide your annual salary by $15,000. For example, if you make $50,000 per year, you would multiply 50,000 / 15,000 3.33 PTO hours remaining.
If you want to add up all your PTO hours, you need to first figure out what percentage of your annual salary you made last year. Then, multiply your current annual salary by that percentage. For example, let’s say you made $20,000 last year. That means you only made 20% of your annual salary. So, if you currently make $40,000, you’d multiply 40,000 x.2 8,000 PTO hours. If you want to see how much you’ve taken so far, just subtract the number of hours you took from the number of hours available.
