If you’re feeling stressed

Talk to someone

It’s understandable to experience concern and anxiety around a public health crisis. If you want to talk to someone about your concerns, the employee assistance program (EAP) is here to help. You can access 10 free counselling sessions per issue, per year.

If you’ll need time off

Disaster and epidemic time off benefit

Effective January 1, 2022, Adobe is providing Disaster and Epidemic Time Off for employees who can’t work due to COVID-19 (previously the COVID-19 Time Off Benefit). This new benefit supplements Adobe’s existing time off benefits. All global regular employees, interns and Adobe-paid temporary employees are eligible.

Time off for reasons unrelated to COVID-19

If you need time off due to reasons unrelated to COVID-19, including vacation/holiday, please leverage your available time off benefits (sick time, paid time off, leave of absence or bereavement) and any government or statutory leave.
