  • Paid Time Off

    Benefit eligible team members accrue paid time off immediately after their employment begins. This PTO plan combines vacation, individual sick days, and personal days into one account to give you maximum flexibility in scheduling time away from work.

    Years of Service Hours Days
    0-4 Years 132 Hours 16.5 Days
    5-9 Years 156 Hours 19.5 Days
    10-14 Years 180 Hours 22.5 Days
    15-19 Years 204 Hours 25.5 Days
    20-24 Years 228 Hours 28.5 Days
    25 Years + 252 Hours 31.5 Days
  • PTO Sell Back

    To assist with managing PTO accrual balances, team members may elect, during an annual sell back period, to “sell back” future PTO accruals. The combination of PTO accruals and PTO sell back accruals will not exceed 328 hours. Hours in excess of 328 will not be paid out.

  • PTO Estimator

    Team members can use the PTO Sell Back Estimator Tool to assist in determining how much PTO to sell back.

  • Holidays

    Separate from the PTO program, FMOLHS grants eligible team members holiday benefit time for those holidays recognized by the health system. Because of organizational needs, not every team member will be able to take time off on the recognized holidays. Therefore, team members who are not afforded time off on recognized holidays are allowed to take an alternative holiday at a time approved by their leader and in accordance with the policy. The FMOLHS recognized holidays are: New Year’s, Good Friday, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. The amount of time off an eligible team member is afforded for holiday observance is determined according to their FTE status.

    FTE Status Holiday Benefit Time per Recognized Holiday
    0.5 - 0.599 FTE 50% of the 1.0 FTE (4 hours)
    0.6 - 0.699 FTE 60% of the 1.0 FTE (4.8 hours)
    0.7 - 0.799 FTE 70% of the 1.0 FTE (5.6 hours)
    0.8 - 0.899 FTE 80% of the 1.0 FTE (6.4 hours)
    0.9 - 0.999 FTE 90% of the 1.0 FTE (7.2 hours)
    1.0 FTE 8 hours
  • Leave of Absence

    Bereavement Leave
    In the event a benefit-eligible team member experiences the death of an immediate family member, they are granted bereavement leave for up to three days (or 24 hours). Bereavement leave is paid at the eligible team member’s current base rate of pay based on their designated FTE status.

    Jury Duty
    Any team member who has to take time off to serve on a local, state, or federal jury in response to a jury summons may be eligible for jury compensation from the health system. Jury service compensation will be paid to eligible team members only if the jury service occurs during a regularly scheduled work shift and will be paid at the regular base rate for those scheduled work shifts.

    Process for Requesting a Leave of Absence
    All requests for leaves of absence must be reported at least 30 days in advance of a planned absence. We understand emergencies arise. For an unplanned absence, report as soon as you’re aware that you’ll be absent for 4 consecutive days for a sickness, injury, or other leave reasons.

  • Health and Wellness Program

    Get Rewarded for Engaging in Your Health and Wellness
    We have enhanced our wellness program to provide you with a more streamlined wellness experience and give you more opportunities to get rewarded for participating in health and well-being activities.

    How It Works:
    You will be able to earn points for engaging in health and wellness activities. Each point you earn is worth $1 with the chance to earn up to 550 points or $550 throughout the year! Best of all, you can redeem your points every month.

    We know the relationship you have with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) is important and they are an essential partner to help you navigate your health. In this expanded program, Healthy Lives will no longer conduct your annual wellness screening. Instead, you will visit your PCP for your annual wellness exam, including biometrics (height, weight, and waist measurement), lab work and complete your Health Risk Assessment (Know Your Number) questionnaire to redeem any of your earned points.

    You will still have access to the Healthy Lives Program to earn points for one-on-one coaching sessions and participating in wellness challenges.
