2010 Survey Of Traditional Time Off And PTO Program Practices
The Alexander Hamilton Institute surveyed more than 21,000 registered users of our website and received 1,193 responses.
Now you can use this data to benchmark your organization's leave policy against your competitors'. Whether you utilize a combined paid time off policy (PTO), where vacation leave, sick leave, and personal leave are lumped into one paid time off bank or a traditional program, where you have a separate vacation leave policy, sick leave policy, and personal leave policy, you'll need (and find!) the answers to key questions such as:
How much time does your employee leave policy give whether you use a combined paid time off policy, vacation leave policy, or a sick leave policy?
Can employees borrow, carry over, cash out…how much and when?
Is unused vacation leave or PTO paid upon termination?
When do employees acquire the time they can use to take days off?
What's the biggest problem pinpointed by users of a combined paid time off policy?
Does switching to a combined paid time off policy reduce the number of unscheduled absences?

You'll find a wealth of insightful analysis explaining the results and what they mean…as well as the implications and trends, on which you need to stay up-to-date. Plus, you can see for yourself the differences between a combined paid time off policy and a traditional leave policy.

MORE THAN JUST A SURVEY
In addition to the survey results, this Special Report provides the practical and legal guidance you need to strengthen your leave system without violating state employment laws.
One entire section of this Report is devoted to the nuts and bolts of setting up and implementing a combined paid time off policy. That includes a checklist of factors to review in the design phase, as well as practical pointers from HR pros.
Numerous state laws touch on various aspects of how you set up and implement your time off programs, no matter what kind you choose. On the CD, you'll discover exactly what your state demands when it comes to vacation pay on termination, timing for termination pay, jury duty, military leave, school visitation leave, and more.
Plus, whether you use a separate vacation leave policy and sick leave policy or a combined paid time off policy, you'll find sample language on the CD for pertinent policies to strengthen your current handbook, including attendance, bereavement, holidays, sick days, vacation, and more.
