Trinity Health Employee Benefits
Paid Time Off - Giving You Time:
Personal time off with pay is called Paid Time Off (PTO). This time may be used at the employee's discretion, for personal reasons, according to policy. Accruals begin with employment and are available for use after 90 days of employment. PTO accrual rates increase with longevity. Use of PTO is encouraged, however, carry-over is permitted. PTO is a wonderful benefit that FT and PT employees earn, based on hours worked. Accrual rates vary based on employee status.
An example of how PTO works is if you are a full-time employee for 1 year (working 40 hours per week for 52 weeks) you would accrue .0577 hours of PTO per hour worked. After 2,080 hours this equates to 3 weeks or 120 hours of PTO. The rate increases at 2081, 10401 and 31201 hours.
Extended sick time accrues from the date of hire, separate from the PTO accruals and is available for use after 90 days of employment. Sick leave is designed to assist the employee during times of illness. 8 hours of Extended Leave are accrued for each 260 hours worked.
Holidays - Celebrate the Holidays!:
At Trinity Health we observe the following six legal holidays. New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Eligibility is after 90 days. Holiday pay is built in to PTO accrual.
