We offer paid leave for both salaried and hourly employees.

As an international company we are never automatically “off” on any given holiday. You must take your own federal holidays and vacation time. Your PTO is calibrated to account for typical state holidays.

Our full time team members receive 176 hours of PTO per year (22 days at 8 hours per day). This accrues automatically in Gusto each pay period. Part-time team members receive PTO at the same rate as our full timers but on an hourly basis rather than per pay period.

We encourage all salaried employees to use their full paid leave every year. If you do not use all of your PTO it will roll over from year to year, up to a maximum balance of 1.75 years worth of paid leave at any given time.

Be sure to submit any PTO requests through the Gusto platform. Your manager will approve or decline and provide comment.

Election Pay

We encourage Cantilever team members to vote in every local and national election they can participate in. You may take up to 8 extra hours of additional PTO in order to vote. If you are salaried you do not have to request this PTO in Gusto, just take the time off. If you are part-time, please log this time under “Uncategorized” in “CompnayHarvest and you will get paid out via Gusto as if you had worked that time.

Jury Duty Pay

We provide up to 35 hours of additional paid time off per Jury Duty summons.

  • If you are on salary, you do not have to take PTO to cover time you miss during Jury Duty, just take the time off.
  • If you are hourly, you may log up to 35 hours per summons to the “Election/Jury Duty Pay” task in Harvest.

After the initial 35 hours, Cantilever will provide whatever pay is required of employers in your state. We may also provide additional pay or benefits at the discretion of the Ops department.

Jury duty often includes a lot of downtime. While Cantilever is continuing to pay you while on Jury Duty, we expect that you will do your best to work during this downtime. For example, please bring your laptop and phone, and contribute however possible given your particular circumstances. If you would prefer to take the time totally off, you can always take PTO.
