Sick Time

At VMware we encourage a healthy work environment. You are entitled to take Sick Time, with the understanding that Sick Time days are to be used solely for recovering from an illness or injury that is not covered by the Social Security Administration. Illnesses and injuries that are covered by Social Security are covered by Medical Leave [1].


All regular full-time and part-time employees who are employed directly by VMware.


You are entitled to forty-eight (48) hours of paid Sick Time per calendar year, which is the equivalent of six (6) days of eight (8) hours each. Sick Time days may be taken in minimum increments of four (4) hours. Sick Time days are paid at 100% of your base salary.
