Prorate Time Off for New Hires

New hires hired in the middle of an accrual period (e.g., hired mid-year for a policy with annual accrual) may receive a prorated amount of time-off hours. Prorated hours for new hires are not rounded to the nearest hour.

To calculate prorated hours for a new hire, take the number of days the individual was employed in the period and divide by the number of total days in the period, then multiply by their accrual rate for that period.

Prorating calculations are based on a 7 day week, not a 5 day work week.
