Paid Time Off

At Macy’s we value our associates and want you to have the tools you need to balance your work and personal life.  Our Paid Time Off program provides needed time to achieve that balance.  Under the program, you can use Paid Time Off to take a vacation, for rest and relaxation, to follow-up on some personal business, or to care for an illness.  Eligibility is determined by your job status and length of service.

On January 30, 2011, our Company adopted a Paid Time Off program that includes the following features:

·         Although Paid Time Off is earned as “days,” associates can also take them in “hours.”

·         The more days an associate works, the more opportunity the associate has for Paid Time Off that reflects their added work contributions.

·         Associates can view the status of their PTO Days on in-site by following the steps below:

1.  Click myschedule from the left navigation menu on in-site

2.  Expand the Time/Attendance menu option

3.  Select the Time Off (MTO) link to access the system

4.  On the View Leave Balance tab, you can view your PTO eligibility for the current year

Using PTO benefits during a Leave of Absence does not extend the maximum amount of leave permitted. See your HR representative for any questions you may have. 

If you separate from the Company, you will be paid out for any earned but unused PTO through the last day of employment.  See your HR Manager or check in-site to see how many earned, but unused PTO days you have.    

If you leave the company and then return to a position for which you are eligible for PTO after more than 60 days, you will be considered a new associate and will be subject to the new hire PTO entitlement.

If you leave the company and then return within 60 days (i.e. 60 days or less) the PTO for which you were eligible before you left will be reinstated upon return to work and you will begin to earn PTO immediately.

If you’re on a vacation and receiving PTO, you can’t be paid additional PTO for illness or disability if you get sick or injured. For more information, consult the Leave of Absence section of the MAG or talk with your HR Representative.
