Unpaid personal leave

If you want to take time away from Adobe for personal reasons, you may request an unpaid personal leave. The time away must be discussed with and approved by your manager and Employee Experience. If your request for personal leave is granted, you can take from one to three months of unpaid leave (up to 6 months with manager approval).

You’re eligible for this leave if you’ve worked at Adobe for more than 12 months, you’re in good standing with the company, business conditions can accommodate your request, you have exhausted your accrued paid time off balance, and there is no other time off plan you can leverage.

To apply for leave please complete the Personal Unpaid Leave Agreement [PDF] and send to the ERC. Then submit the request for your leave via Workday. For more information review the policy [PDF] and FAQ [PDF].

Because Personal Leave is unpaid, your Adobe benefits, including AIP bonus targets, may also be impacted. Please refer to the Rewards Impact during an LOA document [PDF].
