Paid Time Off (PTO)/Personal Leave (PL)
The Department of Personnel & Administration (DPA) is proposing a new Paid Time Off policy, also referred to as Personal Leave, that will combine an employee's annual and sick leave into one bank. The links below provide more in-depth information and a quick look at how proposed personal leave compares to the current leave policy.

Proposed PTO Policy Update from State Personnel Director, Rich Gonzales - 1/15/09
Given the state of concern for the economy and its impact on the state budget, PTO/PL has not been at the forefront of discussion with the administration. As DPA, like every other department, is entrenched in budget cut discussions and personnel issues, the time to discuss the PTO issue, to the extent it merits, has been pushed back. DPA will communicate as soon as PTO becomes a viable priority. The issue remains on the table and will be addressed at an appropriate time. Thanks for everyone's patience and understanding.
