Paid Time Off (PTO)
PayPal values your wellness and wants you to take care of yourself and others in a way that best addresses your needs. Our Paid Time Off (PTO) policy provides the flexibility to use your time for whatever recharges you.
You start earning PTO on your first day of employment:
- First day to the end of your first calendar year—15 days, prorated according to actual days with the company
- First whole calendar year—15 days
- Second whole calendar year—16 days
- Each additional calendar year—1 additional day per year, up to a maximum of 20 days
Paid leaves of absence
Take care of what’s most important to you: your family. PayPal offers a variety of paid leaves of absence that allow you to take care of your loved ones.
Employees who fall sick and are not able to work are eligible for medical leave. You’re eligible for 100% of your base pay for 5 business days. You can request this time off in half-day or full-day units. If you need more than 5 days in a calendar year, then you can take the tenure base medical leave. Visit the Bridge for more information.

Expectant mothers are eligible for paid maternity leave. You may be eligible to receive:
- 98 paid calendar days for maternity plus 30 additional days (starts no earlier than 15 days pre-delivery)
- 15 additional calendar days for a difficult delivery (medical certificate required)
- 15 additional calendar days for each baby born in a multiple birth (medical certificate required)
Female employees who have a miscarriage are also eligible for a period of maternity leave.
New fathers can receive 10 calendar days of paid paternity leave to be with your family.
Travel. Write a book. Pursue a hobby. Spend more time with your family. With PayPal’s sabbatical program, you have the opportunity to do all this and more.
After completing 5 years of continuous service, employees are eligible for 4 weeks paid sabbatical. All 4 weeks must be taken at once and within 12 months of the 5-year anniversary date.
