Annual leave & paid holidays

Annual leave

Adobe provides time off so you can relax and recharge. Please make arrangements with your manager before taking time off.

How much you earn

As a full-time employee, you earn 20 days of annual leave each year. It’s accrued on a monthly basis. Adobe encourages you to use your full annual leave each year to rest and rejuvenate.

Schedule your annual leave in advance with your manager, then submit your request through Excelity.

Company shutdown

Adobe takes one company-wide shutdown each year in December. The dates for the 2019 shutdown are:

  • Friday, December 27, 2019
  • Monday, December 30, 2019
  • Tuesday, December 31, 2019

All employees must use three days of their annual leave for the shutdown. 

Paid holidays

Adobe Australia observes the statutory holidays. Hence, the holiday schedules are different for Melbourne and Sydney employees.
