### Introduction

Calculating Paid Time Off (PTO) for part-time employees is an important aspect of managing workforce benefits. This calculator provides a quick and efficient way to determine the amount of PTO earned based on the hours worked per week and the accrual rate.

### Formula

The PTO earned is calculated by multiplying the hours worked per week by the PTO accrual rate.

### How to Use

- Enter the number of hours worked per week by the part-time employee.
- Input the PTO accrual rate (in hours per week).
- Click the "Calculate" button to get the PTO earned per week.

### Example

Suppose a part-time employee works 20 hours per week and accrues PTO at a rate of 0.5 hours per week. Using the calculator, the PTO earned for that employee would be calculated as follows:

- Hours Worked: 20 hours/week
- PTO Accrual Rate: 0.5 hours/week
- PTO Earned: 10 hours/week
