Personal time off - part-time employees

Personal time off (PTO) enables coaches to take time away from work for a variety of reasons: sick time, vacations, travel, family visits, etc and still get paid for the time they miss through PTO hours they accrued over time.

You can see on your PKV google paystub how many PTO hours you've accrued and how many are available for use.
  • As a coach, you earn 1 hour of PTO for every 20 hours worked (including PKV holidays they are scheduled to work… see Holiday Pay)
  • There is no limit to how much PTO you can earn
  • PKV does not pay out PTO upon termination of employment, but will keep the PTO balance on the books. If you’re rehired within 1 year, you will have access to your banked PTO.

Using PTO is simple, just tell your supervisor that you want to use your PTO hours during the normal coverage process. The best way to do this is to mention you want to use available PTO in the last confirmation email of the coverage process.

  • PTO pays out at the rate a coach would earn for their normal shift.

For example:

Bill teaches 2 classes and runs adult open gym on Wednesday evenings. He comes down with a monster 1-day virus and needs to take the day off. He alerts his supervisor that he’ll be out sick, finds covers for his classes, and also tells his boss that he’d like to use PTO for the day off.

On his next paycheck, Bill is paid for 4 hours of teaching rate and 2.25 hours of open gym rate from his PTO bank. And there is much rejoicing.

  • You may only use 40 hours of PTO in a calendar year
  • You can borrow up to 20 hours (subject to approval) if you haven’t accumulated enough hours to cover an absence. If your employment terminates with a negative PTO balance, you must pay off the balance (we’ll calculate a mixed hourly rate based on your regular schedule).
