Implementing a Compliant Paid Time Off Program


Time off benefits rank as the number two benefit for employees right behind employer paid medical insurance.  Trying to find a balance between sick, vacation and personal time can be very challenging.  Implementing a Paid Time Off (PTO) program provides a number of benefits to the employer. PTO provides more flexibility and fairness to both the employer and the employee and can be seen as a win-win situation.
However, a poorly thought out transition can also be disastrous to the morale of the employees.

Employers still using the traditional sick/vacation/personal days are falling behind their competition in the time off benefits arena.  There is quite a bit to consider before implementing a PTO program.  More and more employees prefer to have a more flexible program such as PTO.  Doing one’s homework before implementing a PTO program by talking employee fairness and state compliance into consideration will ensure its success.
