Paid Time Off

Paid Time Off (PTO) is a combination of Annual Leave and Floating Days Off (FDO) that allow you to be paid while having time off from work for personal reasons including:

  • Vacation used for rest, recreation, or travel
  • Scheduled medical appointments
  • Taking Time Out for Loved Ones

If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Leave page.


Regular full-time employees are entitled to both Annual Leave and Floating Days Off each year. Annual Leave is pro-rated for newly-hired full-time employees. Unused Annual Leave gets rolled over annually and there is cap on accumulation of 5 days per year. Annual Leave accrued is paid out upon termination of employment. Floating Days Off do not get rolled over to next year.

Annual Leave is accrued at a rate of 10 hours per month. Floating Days Off are accrued by 1 day for each quarter. New employees will receive a pro rata based on their commencement month.

Scheduling Paid Time Off

  • Discuss your Annual Leave plans, in advance, with your manager. If an absence is unexpected, you should notify your manager as soon as possible. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that work load does not restrict you from taking Vacation time.
  • Once agreed with your manager, enter your Annual Leave in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Vacation Time Off.

You are responsible for monitoring your PTO provisions and to plan your leave accordingly during the calendar year to avoid any forfeits in your earned PTO. In due diligence, you should also make appropriate arrangements with your manager and team to ensure work commitments are met in your absence. For employees in the sales and sales operations team, it is recommended not to take extensive leave in the last month of the quarter ending.
