Annual Leave provides you with paid time off from your job for personal reasons including: vacation, outside activities, scheduled medical appointments, and personal business. If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Leave page.
In compliance with the Bulgarian law if you have completed at least eight (8) months of service you are entitled to paid vacation. You are entitled to an Annual Leave of twenty (20) paid business days and an additional five (5) business days for open-ended working hours.
VMware will provide you with the possibility to use up to half of your Annual Leave entitlement until the end of June of the respective calendar year and the rest of your entitlement until the end of the year.
According to the provisions of the Labor Code, you need to use your paid Annual Leave within the calendar year for which the paid leave is due. You can check your available leave balance via Workday [VMware network access required].
VMware only permits the cashing out of unused Annual Leave when you resign or cease to be employed for any other reason, at which time the full accumulated/outstanding leave entitlement, which has not lapsed by that time, is paid out.
Scheduling Annual Leave
- Discuss your Annual Leave plans, in advance, with your manager. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that work load does not restrict you from taking Annual Leave.
- Once agreed with your manager enter your Annual Leave time off at least one (1) week in advance, in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Vacation Time Off (Days).
