Leave Plan

Q

Regarding leave plans, what percentage of employees chose the PTO option,
and what percentage chose the Traditional option? Also, is it possible to
provide a breakdown of those percentages by demographics, i.e., what were
the percentages for men, women, and junior and senior staff, as well as the
overall total?

I have another question: How did the budget come out in the most recent
year (after we had the budget with the ballooning sick leave that caused
the PTO/Traditional changes)?

As for the budget, the increase in sick leave occurred in FY00 and FY01.
Prior to those years, sick leave averaged 2.8% of base pay. In FY00 it was
3.2%, and in FY01 it was 3.3%. Sick leave in FY02 was 3.0%.
