A sabbatical provides you with a break from the pace and intensity of your work and allows you to spend more time with your family, travel, to pursue a social service project, or simply relax. Once you have completed 5 years of service with PayPal, you may request 4 weeks of time off with pay through the Global Sabbatical Program.

Travel. Write a book. Pursue a hobby. Spend more time with your family. With PayPal’s sabbatical programme, you have the opportunity to do all this and more.

After completing 5 years of continuous service, full- and part-time employees are eligible for 4 weeks paid sabbatical. All 4 weeks must be taken at once and within 12 months of the 5-year anniversary date.

Request Sabbatical

Submit your sabbatical request in Workday in the My Time and Absence section. Just type “workday” into your browser (must be on the Bridge from the PayPal network). You can also access a practical guide in the Resources section of Workday.
