Support in times of need

Life is full of unexpected—and sometimes difficult—events, which can be overwhelming. The good news is that Adobe has benefits that can help. But sorting through them could be overwhelming too!

This page summarizes some of the most common resources for Adobe employees and family members when you need support the most.

Mental and emotional support

The employee assistance program (EAP) through Spring Health offers free, confidential therapy and resources to help Adobe employees and eligible family members.

Time away from work

Take the time you need for your health and wellbeing.

Sick time

Adobe provides up to five sick days so you can rest and get well. Sick time may be used in hourly increments and carries over from year to year—up to a maximum accrual of 37.5 hours.

Notify your manager as soon as possible and submit your sick time request through Workday > Time Off & Leave > Request Time Off.

If you need to take sick time, but you don't have any available, you can borrow up to five sick days.


Take up to 20 working days of paid bereavement time per year to help ease the emotional, financial, and logistical burdens following the loss of an immediate family member.

Submit your bereavement time request through Workday > Time Off & Leave > Request Time Off.

Disaster and epidemic time off (DETO)

Take up to 20 working days of disaster and epidemic time off per year, as required by a significant event or epidemic.

Submit your DETO request through Workday > Time Off & Leave > Request Time Off.

Leave of absence

If you need to be away from work for an extended time because of your own medical needs or to care for someone else, a leave of absence may be appropriate.

Reasonable accommodation

If you have a limitation or restriction that prevents you from performing the essential functions of your job, Adobe will work with you and your doctor to provide reasonable accommodation, in accordance with national, provincial, and local laws. For details, see the reasonable accommodation policy.

To initiate the review process, submit a request via the Support Centre.
