Time Off

Time off gives you time away from work to rest, relax, recover from illness or take care of personal matters. For more information, go to Insight.


You are eligible for five days off in the case of a death in your immediate family, which includes step relations and in-laws. You also receive one day off if your pet (dog, cat or bird) passes away.

This leave is paid.


Take a day to celebrate you! Your birthday counts as a paid holiday. The day off must be taken within two weeks (before or after) of your birthday date. Just be sure to coordinate your time off with your manager.


Regular full-time employees are entitled to casual leave with wages for a period not exceeding six (6) days. This leave may be used to care for a sick child, parent, spouse, domestic partner, or the child of a domestic partner or any other reasonable cause. If you are hired after January 1, you will be entitled to a pro-rated number of casual leave days (at the rate of 0.5 days per month).

Casual leave cannot be carried forward to the next calendar year.

Casual leave is not paid out upon termination or resignation, provided however, if you are entitled to casual leave and discharged when you are sick or suffering from the result of an accident, you shall be paid for the days of casual leave remaining on such date of termination. Such payment shall be computed at the same rate as the rate at which encashability of privilege leave is computed above.

Family Support Time

We know that having an elderly family member or another dependent who you need to care for adds additional stress to your life. To help you manage these kinds of family situations, we provide four weeks of paid time away per fiscal year for you to provide care and support for a qualified family member (spouse/domestic partner, child, parent, parent-in-law, grandparent, grandparent-in-law or sibling).

Due to COVID-19, we're temporarily expanding this program to address challenges related to child care. You can use family support time for child care for dependents under age 18. This includes if your child care provider, schools or camps are closed, or if your child is sick or needs other care such as school support or supervision.


Male employees are entitled to a maximum of 20 working days. The leave must be taken within 12 months after the birth or adoption of the child.

This leave is paid.

Privilege Leave

Regular full-time employees who are regularly scheduled to work 40 or more hours per week earn privilege leave according to years of service:

  • Start date through day before fifth anniversary: 20 days per calendar year
  • Fifth anniversary and beyond: 25 days per calendar year

Leave will be credited into your leave account on a monthly basis. If you join the company in the middle of the calendar year, leave entitlement will be prorated from the date of joining until the end of the year. If you are regularly scheduled to work less than 40 hours per week you will earn leave on a pro-rated basis. Leave can be availed in full or half day increments and only after receiving manager approval in advance.

If leave accrued during a year is not fully availed within the year, up to 45 days of un-availed leave can be carried forward. At the beginning of the calendar year, your opening balance will not exceed 45 days.

You can avail privilege leave on what is accrued only. Any leave availed in excess of the accrued entitlement will be treated as leave without pay. If you leave Intuit, accumulated leave balance can be encashed as part of the full and final settlement at the time of leaving Intuit (up to the maximum accrual cap) at the following rate: Number of days accrued multiplied by the daily average of Basic Salary (exclusive of allowances and bonus) payable in the month immediately preceding the leave.


You can cash out a portion of unused privilege leave once a year at the end of the calendar year. Make sure that your request for privilege leave encashment is less than or equal to the privilege leave taken through the calendar year (January – December). You can apply for leave encashment on Workday between November 15 and December 31 against the privilege leaves availed in that calendar year. The same will be processed via the January payroll of the subsequent calendar year.

Please note that any back-dated leave applications/corrections for the calendar year will be allowed only until December 31 of the same year and not beyond that.

Privilege Leave Bridging

Intuit values the long-term service of its employees. Consistent with that value, Intuit intends to bridge certain benefits of former Intuit regular employees who return to Intuit's employ less than one year from their termination.

If you left Intuit voluntarily or were laid off and then are rehired less than one year from your termination date your former service will be considered in determining your privilege leave entitlement. Privilege leave is paid out at termination, and thus no past privilege leave accrued during prior service will be reinstated upon rehire.

Sick Time

Regular employees and interns are entitled to sick leave for up to 12 days per calendar year. Employees hired after January 1 will receive a pro-rated number of days at the rate of 1 day per month. 

Sick Leave cannot be carried forward to the next calendar year.

Unused sick time is not paid out upon termination or resignation, provided however, if you are entitled to sick leave and discharged when you are sick or suffering from the result of an accident, you shall be paid for the days of sick leave remaining on such date of termination.

Supplemental Sick Time

Due to COVID-19, in March 2020, we provided a temporary one-time grant of two weeks, equivalent to your regularly scheduled workweek, that you could use to focus on your physical or mental health. We're now refreshing balances so you'll have the equivalent of two weeks that can be used through December 2021.

You can use this time off when you or a family member are ill or injured or need a medical diagnosis, care (including preventive care) or treatment. This includes being subject to quarantine or an isolation period due to concerns related to COVID-19, attending an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and/or experiencing symptoms related to a COVID-19 vaccine. You may also use paid supplemental sick time for public health emergencies resulting in the closure of your worksite, child care provider or child’s school.

This time off is paid.
