Adoption Leave

VMware will provide the same Maternity Leave and Paternity Leave benefits to employees who legally adopt a child who is less than twelve (12) months of age. If the child is more than twelve (12) months old, VMware will provide 4 weeks of paid Adoption Leave.

Scheduling Adoption Leave

  •  Adoption Leave must be discussed with your immediate manager in advance, so that proper arrangements can be made. You must inform both your manager and HR Source [VMware network access required] of how and when you would like to utilize your Adoption Leave.
  • After your manager has been notified, send your Adoption Leave dates, via email, to Payroll.

Returning to Work

While on Adoption Leave you should maintain open communication with your manager and HR Source [VMware network access required]. VMware will assume that you wish to return to work at the end of your Adoption Leave period however; you should contact HR Source [VMware network access required] towards the end of your scheduled Adoption Leave to confirm and arrange your return to work.

For additional support and resources to consider with the addition of a child to your family, see the Birth or Adoption life event page.
