Paid Leave

Umbrella icon

Your time away from work is important.

Here are some highlights about our program.

Corporate Holidays

Brooks adds 6 corporate holidays per year into your Paid Leave bucket throughout the annual accrual.

  • If your office is closed for the holiday, your Paid Leave will be used to cover that day for you automatically.
  • If you work on the holiday, you are free to use those hours on a different day.
  • If the holiday falls on a weekend then you are free to use those hours on another day since it was not needed for the holiday.

Holidays include:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Paid Leave

Brooks allows two cash-out opportunities per year, one in July and another in December. Brooks also allows a rollover of 160 hours each year.

Information on how to cash out your Paid Leave hours will be sent to your Brooks email the month prior along with the link to the form that you will need to submit electronically.  You may cash-out up to 40 hours of Paid Leave, but cannot have less than 40 hours remaining in your bucket after the cash out.

Plans shown below are for full time employees (80 hours per pay period). Employees working less earn paid leave at a pro-rated amount based on the hours worked. To find your accrual as a part time employee you can use the accrued amount below, divide by 80 and then multiple that number by hours worked.
