Paternity Leave

VMware believes that leave is an instrument of work-life balance and recognizes that fathers play an important role in raising children. To support this, VMware provides Paternity Leave so that you can take the necessary time off work to bond with your new baby. 

Eligibility 

To be eligible for Paternity Leave you must be the biological or adoptive father of the child, or the mother’s husband or partner; and have, or expect to have, responsibility for the child’s upbringing. 

You may be eligible for other leaves in addition to paternity leave. Review the Parental Leave page for more information. 

Entitlement 

If you have a newborn child(ren) or newly adopted child(ren) join your family, you are eligible for up to four (4) paid weeks to bond with your new child(ren). You will have one (1) year from the date of birth or legal placement into your home to take advantage of these four weeks. The four (4) weeks can be taken all at once or in weekly increments.

Scheduling Paternity Leave 

Email your manager to agree on dates, then contact HR Source [VMware network access required] who will support you with queries on the benefit and will work with the responsible teams to ensure your Paternity Leave is tracked correctly. For the above paid absence, any balance not utilized cannot be carried forward to the following year.  

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