Paid Leave

Your time away from work is important. Here are some highlights about our program.

Paid Leave

  • In the first year of benefits eligible employment, 8 hours will be pre-loaded into PL banks, therefore the accrual rate in the first year is slightly lower.
  • Beginning 1/1/20, usage of PL banks is allowed upon hire. There is no waiting period for usage.
  • Plans shown are for full time employees (80 hours per pay period). Days are represented in 8 hour increments. Employees working less than 80 hours per pay period earn PL at a pro-rated amount based on hours worked..
  • Unworked Holidays are paid through the PL Program. Brooks observes 6 holidays:
    • New Year’s Day
    • Memorial Day
    • Independence Day
    • Labor Day
    • Thanksgiving Day
    • Christmas
