How many days of paid leave do I have per year?

  • Leave time and benefits eligibility is determined by the position status (Full-Time Equivalency or FTE), not by hours worked. All positions programmed with standard hours of 30 or more are classified as "benefits eligible." You may confirm your position status with Human Resources.
