Paid Time Off
Comprehensive Annual Leave
Provides employees with paid time off for rest and relaxation, personal or family illness, bereavement, and personal business. For FLSA non-exempt classifications, 19 days annual accrual during the first year, increasing to 30 days beginning in year ten, prorated based on the full-time equivalent for all part-time positions. For exempt classifications, 24 days annual accrual during the first year, increasing to 35 days beginning in year ten, prorated based on the full-time equivalent for all part-time positions.
Comprehensive Annual Leave Buy-Back Program
Employees can make one written irrevocable election in December of each calendar year requesting the City buy-back Comprehensive Annual Leave (CAL) accrued hours for payout in the next calendar year. The maximum buy-back election shall not exceed an employee’s maximum annual accrual, cannot exceed 280 hours for a FLSA exempt employee or 240 hours for a FLSA non-exempt employee, and an employee must have a remaining CAL balance of 180 hours after the election. An employee must also have taken a minimum of 80 hours of leave in the election year, including no less than 40 hours leave over 5 consecutive business days to be eligible. A part-time employee’s participation in this program will be prorated based on the employee’s full-time equivalent (FTE). CAL buy-back is subject to all federal, state, and/or local taxes in force at the time of issuance, but is not subject to California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) withholding. This program does not apply to probationary employees.
