1. PTO for quarter-time employees: I am wondering about best practices for paid time off (PTO) for quarter-time employees (10 hrs/week). Our nonprofit is very small; we have only 3 quarter-time employees. Is it typical or encouraged to provide PTO at such small organizations? If so, how much is typical or reasonable?
2. Gross vs. net wages: I am wondering how to communicate wage information to employees, and whether the employer side of payroll taxes tend to be included in gross wages (or if *only* the employee side of payroll taxes is included). For example, if we were to say an employee had a gross wage of $20/hour, would that $20 include *all* payroll taxes, or just the employee side of payroll taxes?
