Salaried Field Associates are eligible to accrue PTO after completing 6 months of service according to the following schedule:
Months of Service
6 – 60 months
61 – 120 months
121 months or more
Monthly Rate of Accrual
PTO accrues after close of business on the last day of each month (for the current month’s accrual) and is available for use the first day of the following month. Salaried Field Associates are given credit for previous months of service if the associate leaves Mastech Digital but is rehired within 6 months of their last working day.
For new hires, the first month of accrual is prorated based on the number of days in your 6th month of employment. You will earn 0.285 hours (8.67 x 12 months = 104.04 annual PTO hours / 365 days per year) per day of accrual. For example, if you are hired on June 10 your 6th month of employment will be on December 10. You will accrue PTO for 21 employment days in December on January 1 a total of 5.99 hours (0.285 x 21 days).
Salaried Field Associates who work on a reduced efforts basis are eligible to accrue PTO in proportion to the number of hours they are regularly scheduled to work.
Associates may not accrue PTO during unpaid leaves of absence or other periods of inactive service. Accrued PTO must be utilized before any unpaid time will be approved.
All Associates are encouraged to take their accrued PTO each calendar year. Associates must request PTO from their HR Generalist as far in advance as possible but at least thirty (30) days in advance of a planned leave lasting more than three (3) business days. Mastech Digital generally will grant requests for PTO, when possible, taking business needs into consideration.
Salaried Field Associates will carry over accrued but unused PTO to the subsequent calendar year up to a maximum of 80 hours. Any accrued PTO in excess of 80 hours at the end of the calendar year will be paid out to the Salaried Field Associate. On termination of employment, Associates will be paid for any accrued but unused PTO at the associate’s final rate of pay, provided the associate gives notice of termination as required in their employment agreement.
