Adoption Assistance

The Company recognizes that it takes time and care to welcome an adopted child into your family. Our Adoption Assistance/Leave Policy provides* teammates who choose to adopt with 120 hours of paid Adoption Leave to be used within one year of starting the adoption process. The Adoption Leave is intended to provide additional paid time away from work to assist with the unique aspects of adopting a child, such as travel and legal proceedings. Parents who are adopting are also eligible for the DICK'S Paid Parental Leave Program, which begins upon adoption placement and is primarily intended for parent/child bonding.

Once an adoption is final, the Company will reimburse eligible adoption-related expenses up to the maximum amount that can be excluded from income under the tax code, which is $14,400 for 2021.

The Applying for Adoption Request Form and the Adoption Assistance Reimbursement Request Form can be found here.

*To be eligible, a teammate must be classified as a salaried or full-time hourly teammate at the time of the request for adoption leave.
