This depends on your position. Supervisor get excellent PTO in comparison to the clinical staff. On the salary based model, if we don't hit our hours due to uncontrollable and inevitable cancellations for whatever reason... we are forced to put in PTO. Actually, my supervisor has done it for me.
PTO is actually good, and can be earned for hours worked. It is flex time and can be used for whatever you like. HOWEVER, regardless of how many hours you usually work in a day they will only pay you FOUR hours for a sick or vacation day.
No sick time or PTO time you have to accumulate hours per hours that you work if you're sick you lose all your PTO time .
You do have the rights to contact your clients to cancel scheduled appointments due to a cause of an illness. Afterwards, you are required to complete a cancellation note. It is uncertain if you will receive sick pay. The company does not explain well on how this process works. Supervisors/ Coordinator don't discuss PTO hours being used towards an illness even when mentioning an illness. This may also depend if you even have any PTO leftover, since they take away every hours that is under 20.
The company do provide maternity leave, but will only make roughly $600-$700 every other week, for 8 weeks. ( lower than set rate given).
