The VTO Program is an option for County employees looking to balance work and personal/family demands.  Full time employees can use VTO to reduce their fiscal year working hours without losing full time employee County benefits.  Interested employees are encouraged to discuss with their manager to determine if VTO is a good option and meets the Department's operational needs.

Eligibility Requirements:

You must be a full-time employee.

Your Supervisor and Department Head must approve your request to participate in the VTO program.

Tools:
