To be eligible to accumulate PTO, an employee must be a permanent part-time or full-time employee scheduled at least 16 hours per week.  The number of paid time off hours earned is based upon the number of hours worked each pay period and the total hours of accumulated service with Crossroads of Western Iowa.  Employees will not accumulate additional PTO hours/credit when paid for more than 40 hours per work week.  The following is a sample of accumulated PTO for a full-time employee.
