PPS will continue to administer pay and benefits for all eligible leave types, including leaves administered by FMLASource.
Follow the steps below to determine how much of your leave will be paid, and how long you will maintain your benefits while on leave:
- Your leave balances can be viewed in PeopleSofe Employee Self-Service (ESS) or on the bottom of your pay stub.
IMPORTANT: We encourage you to access PeopleSoft ESS while on-site, if possible. To access PeopleSoft ESS off-site, you must be registered for both 1) DUO and 2) Google Authenticator Two-Step Authentification. For assistance, contact the PPS Help Desk at 503-916-3375.
- Understand the order that your paid leave balances will be used.
- To care for a family member: family illness leave, sick leave, personal time, vacation (if applicable), reserve sick leave*
- Employee own medical: sick leave, personal time, vacation (if applicable), reserve sick leave*
- Birth/adoption/parental: sick leave, personal leave, family illness leave, vacation (if applicable), reserve sick leave*
* Reserve Sick Leave is paid at 2/3 pay
- Add up the total number of eligible accrued paid leave hours you can use. Divide this by the hours/day you work. This will give you the actual number of paid days you can use during your leave.
100 hours of sick leave
40 hours of Reserve Sick Leave (paid at 2/3 pay)
24 hours of Personal/Emergency Leave
+ 80 hours of Vacation Time
244 total hours / 8 hours per day = 30.5 days
- Refer to the Work Year Calendar that is applicable to your employee group/your role . Exclude days that are not part of your work year such as spring break, winter break, etc., if applicable. Also, exclude paid holidays when counting your paid leave usage.
IMPORTANT: Employees are required to use any paid leave balances prior to going into an unpaid status, in most situations.
Sick Leave Bank
There are sick leave banks available to certain groups of employees under specific circumstances. Your own personal paid leave must be exhausted before you can use any sick leave bank hours. For more information, please visit our Sick Leave Bank webpage at https://www.pps.net/Page/2254.
