Taking Time Away From Work
All active employees who are budgeted to work at least 40 hours every pay period earn PTO. With your supervisor’s approval, you can use this time for vacation, illness, holidays, personal and family needs.
The more hours you work (up to 80 per pay period), the more PTO you earn. And the longer you stay at Mission, the more PTO you earn. You can keep a balance of up to 400 hours of PTO before it stops accruing.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that provides eligible employees the right to take a leave of absence for personal or family medical reasons, and leave for military families, while maintaining job protection.
Additionally, in situations where the employee does not qualify for FMLA, Mission offers other types of leave to help support particular needs.
Leaves of Absence are administered by the Time Away From Work Service Center. Employees should contact the Time Away From Work Service Center when they:
- Know they have a need to take a leave of absence of any kind
- Will be absent from work for any illness or injury for more than 3 days
- Need to report intermittent FMLA time off
