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)

PTO is available for you to take time away from work and spend it the way you want to.

PayPal provides 26 days per year to all employees, regardless of years of service.

Your PTO is calculated pro rata if you join or leave PayPal during the working year.

Partial PTO days that are less than 50% of a day are brought down to a round figure. 

How it works

The PTO year runs from 1 January to 31 December.

Any PTO not taken in the calendar year may be carried over until 30 April of the following year.

You should use any accrued PTO before being granted an unpaid leave of absence.
