Paid Time Off Policy Update

The University of Pennsylvania’s ample paid time off (PTO) benefits have expanded as of the new fiscal year. After thorough review and consultation with leaders from across our schools and centers, the University of Pennsylvania has updated its Paid Time Off Policy with increased accrual rates for new and recently hired staff members. The policy revisions went into effect July 1, 2023. 

This policy revision strengthens the University’s ability to recruit talented staff at all experience levels and maintain our competitive position among the best employers in the nation. These enhancements to Penn’s attractive and equitable paid time off policy will benefit the whole Penn community by reinforcing work-life balance and well-being for new staff and long-standing employees alike.
