Family Caring Days’ Time Off

VMware provides Family Care Days (omsorgsdage) so that you can take the necessary time off work to care for an immediate family member.


You are entitled to five (5) paid Family Care Days each year, which can be used if you need to take time off work to care for an immediate family member (spouse/partner, any dependent children, parents (mother/father) or siblings (brother/sister)). 

These Family Caring Days can only be used once all holiday accrued under the Danish Holiday Act has been taken. 

These days will expire without compensation if they are not used within the calendar year and/or upon termination of employment. It is not possible to save these days for the next coming year.

Scheduling Family Care Days’ Time Off

  • Discuss your Family Caring Days’ time off 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 Family Caring Days’ time off.
  • Once agreed with your manager, enter your Family Caring Days’ time off in Workday[VMware network access required] under time off type Family Care (Days).
