Time off and leaves of absence

What you need to know

Taking time off—away from your job—is vital to being at your best. We support this by offering ample time off for all kinds of situations.

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. Starting 1 January, full-time employees earn 18 hours of PTO per month / 216 hours of PTO per annum. This means you receive 27 working days of PTO a year. Part-time employees earn PTO time prorated, based on your scheduled hours. Your PTO is loaded on the 1st of January of each year for you to use.

Each new year, you can carry over a maximum of 5 days PTO, which should be used by the end of March. Your manager will review your PTO balance with you regularly.
