Paid Leave Policy

In the search for talent, companies need to find new ways to remain competitive in the war of talents. Modern or adapted working and absence regulations help to attract qualified employees. The introduction and implementation of a paid absence policy can play an important role in this. But which arrangement suits you?

Traditional vacation

In addition to vacation and sick time, traditional leave policies often include jury, bereavement and elective leave. When developing traditional leave policies, HR must consider when and how much leave is accrued, whether accrued but unused leave is carried over to the following year, and how accrued paid leave is paid out. For some companies, traditional leave policies are attractive because, while there are provisions for paying out or carrying over accrued leave, unused sick or personal leave is generally lost from year to year.

Paid Time Off (PTO)

A paid time off program provides employees with a bucket of paid leave to use for any time away from work. When creating a PTO policy, it is important to consult state and local laws to determine when accrued PTO must be paid out upon termination of employment, whether due to retirement, termination or involuntary separation. In addition, state law may dictate whether a company can adopt a "use it or lose it" policy that resets the PTO balance at the end of the year in which it was accrued.

Unlimited paid leave

With unlimited paid leave, there are no limits on the amount of time employees can take off from work as long as they first meet business requirements. However, unlimited paid leave is becoming increasingly popular - especially in the technology industry, where companies are competing for the best talent.
