Sick Time Off

At VMware we encourage a healthy work environment. You are entitled to take Sick Time Off in accordance with statutory requirements with the understanding that sick days are solely for recuperating from an illness or injury.


VMware provides paid Sick Time Off in accordance to the law for any illness supported by a medical certificate.

VMware provides pay for Time Off due to sickness for up to 12 months every 3 years for its employees as follows:

  • the first month of Time Off at full base salary; and
  • the next 8 months of Time Off at 75% of full base salary

If an employee exhausts their Paid Sickness Time Off Entitlement, they will be entitled to a further 3 months of unpaid Time Off.


Failure to timely provide documentary evidence of temporary disability (illness, accident, etc.), including submission of duly formalized medical certificate may result in the Employee no being paid sick leave.

Scheduling Sick Leave

You should notify your manager as soon as possible that you will not be coming to work due to illness or injury. When absent due to illness, you must provide your manager and HR Source with a medical certificate is required within three (3) working days.

Employees should also note that when requested by VMware, they may be required to:

  • promptly attend a health assessment with an Occupational Health Advisor nominated by VMware; and/or
  • attend sickness absence and and/or return to work meetings.

For prolonged illness you may be eligible for disability payments from the Disability Insurance Plan subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.
