VMware is dedicated to work-life balance and offers a family-friendly environment that is supportive of working parents. VMware provides Maternity Leave in accordance with statutory requirements so that you can take the necessary time off work to recover and to bond with your new baby.
This Policy applies to female employees who give birth to a child. Newly hired employees who may not have the relevant social security contributions to qualify for statutory maternity payments will remain eligible for the full Maternity Leave.
You are entitled to take up to 28 weeks maternity leave (37 weeks for multiple births). The term may not be shorter than 14 weeks and may not be interrupted or ended before 6 weeks following childbirth. If the child was delivered stillborn you shall be entitled to the maternity leave for the period of 14 weeks. Your Maternity leave period may begin 8 to 6 weeks prior to your due date.
During the first 4 weeks of the maternity you will continue to receive your regular salary and statutory payment for the remaining duration of your maternity leave.
You must inform your manager and HR Source of your pregnancy and provide a copy of your medical certificate from your doctor, indicating your child’s expected due date and confirm the date you intend to start your maternity leave.
Returning to work
Following the end of your maternity leave period, ensure that you notify your intended return date the HR Source team.
For additional support and resources to consider with the addition of a child to your family, see the Birth or Adoption life event page.
