Frequently Asked Questions

What paid time off do I earn?

Full-time employees accrue paid time off, or AVAIL, to be used for vacation and minor illnesses and injuries subject to certain terms and conditions. Full-time employees also accrue paid time off, or SAIL, for qualifying medically related absences that prevent employees from performing the essential functions of their jobs for more than 40 regularly scheduled working hours. Paid time off is outlined in Chapter 19, Article X and XI of the City Code.
