It depends on how long your work day is but if you company does 8 hours you have 6.875 days off…

How many hours do you work in a day?

Divide the hours by your work hours and it will produce the amount of days.

I’m no expert, but I think basically you have 55 hours you can use, and it depends on your schedule, but if you work 8-hour days you have 7 days you can take off except for 1 hour, which I’m guessing you could accrue by then.

But you should really just talk to someone at your company about it.

ETA: But 2 of the days you want off are weekend days, so I’m guessing you want to take off 6 work days, likely 40 hours, and should be fine anyways.

So for instance, you will probably have to put in for 2 days of Vacation (16 hours), 2 days of PTO (16 hours). Assuming you don’t work weekends, that should cover you. If you do, you would have to put in for that other 16 hours of personal time.

Kslim13:  Wait… how do you have 16 hours of “PTO” and 16 hours of “personal time”? PTO usually stands for “Personal Time Off”, so I find it really confusing that you list them as two seperate things. Are you sure those are two sets of 16 hours or is it really the same time listed in two different places? Meanwhile, some offices use “personal time” to mean “sick leave” and you can’t use it as pre-planned vacation.

Long story short- you need to talk to your manager/HR person. Every office is different.

If you work 8 hour shifts then you have a little less than 3 days worth of vacation and 4 other days of time.

ksn1219:  Ah. That makes sense. And that’s different from sick time and vacation time? So confusing. This is why I think OP should be asking her HR department, not us. Some offices have really bizzare rules.

Kslim13:  I would say 23 hours = 3 days + 30 minutes

7.5×3 = 22.5 (most people are paid for a 7.5 hour workday)

typically vacation is calculated at a minimum of 4% of hours worked which is 2 weeks (the minimum required in every province I’ve ever worked in)

Kslim13:  The 16 hours are what you have accrued thus far this year, and the 25 hours are carried over from the previous year/s that you haven’t used up yet. At least that’s how it would seem at my job.

I cannot believe this is a real question.

So super confusing. At my company PTO, Personal Time and Vacation are all the same thing.

Also, just talk to HR.

Don’t waste HR’s time. Ask your manager or a colleague.
