Vacation allows you time away from work to relax, travel and enjoy time with family. If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Medical Leave or Sick Leave page.


Employees will accrue 15 business days of vacation each year. You begin to accrue vacation on your first day at VMware.

Scheduling Vacation Time

Once agreed with your manager, enter your Vacation Time in Workday [VMware network access required].

Cash Out

At the employee’s request, and if agreed upon Employee and Manager, a cash out for no more than half of the unused vacation days can be made to the employee. Cash out must be agreed in writing by both parties. Manager’s email approval of cash out must be sent to Payroll through a HelpNow Ticket.

When requesting vacation encashment, employees also need to request to take Vacation Time Off to enjoy for at least the same number of days as the encashment request amount. Once the encashment request is approved and sent to Payroll, Employees should record their Vacation Encashment in Workday. [VMware network access required].


If unused, vacation balances expire after 48 months.
