Paid Time Off

The Paid Time Off (PTO) Program applies to Dallas-based newspaper companies and Corporate. 

What PTO Includes

This program provides eligible employees with pay for vacation and other personal time off. It is also used for sick days (though after 40 consecutive sick hours, short-term disability kicks in for regular full-time employees).
