Paid Leave

Types of Paid Leave

Adoption assistance

Novant Health’s Adoption Assistance Program provides up to $3,500 per child ($7,000 per year maximum) for adoption-related expenses.

We are proud of our team members who make the personal and professional sacrifice to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Knowing enlisted team members may be required to be away from work to fulfil this duty of service, Novant Health offers military leave — a period of benefits, pay, and job protection — to those serving in the Armed Forces.

During military leave, you may receive supplemental pay equal to the difference between military compensation and your base hourly rate of pay.
