Supporting Our Teammates and Our Troops

Military Leave Program

We are proud to support our military community and in 2019 we announced important changes to our Military Leave Program.


To support employees who volunteer for—or are called to serve—in any of the uniformed services, NIKE, Inc.’s Military Leave Program now provides up to 12 weeks of paid time off every 12 months. If those 12 weeks are exhausted, employees may apply accrued personal time off as well. 


Eligibility is limited to U.S. full-time NIKE, Inc. employees and begins on the first day of active work. All Nike employees are still eligible for unpaid, job-protected leave pursuant to applicable law. The cumulative length of leave for military service is generally up to five years.
