Hourly Employee Purchased Leave Time (HEPLT)
HEPLT provides additional paid time off to eligible employees who need or want a few extra days beyond their normal paid leave time (PLT) accrual. With HEPLT, employees are able to purchase time off in full day increments up to five (5) days or 40 hours in a calendar year in return for a pro-rated reduction in their salary. This provides employees with a steady, reduced income and additional leave.
While HEPLT may provide employees with time to spend with their families during holidays, it may also mean that an employee has time to pursue a particular hobby or further study. HEPLT is an important factor in employee morale and retention. Please consult the HEPLT Program and Form for additional information.
