Maternity Leave

VMware is dedicated to work-life balance and offers a family-friendly environment that is supportive of working parents. VMware provides Maternity Leave so that you can take the necessary time off work to recover and to bond with your new baby.


All active employees of VMware are eligible upon your date of hire (excluding external contractors). There is no minimum period of Company service required.


You are entitled to 105 working days of maternity leave. Parental leave, which can be taken at the end of maternity leave, is extended by up to 60 working days in the event of multiple birth for each additional child born. Either mother or father can take this extension either as a whole or in part during the maternity or parental leave period.

You are entitled to receive your normal basic salary from VMware for the first 3 months from the beginning of your maternity leave.

Scheduling Maternity Leave

You may commence maternity leave at any time from 30 or 50 working days before the estimated date of delivery. If reasonably practical, we ask that you give at least two (2) months’ notice of your intention to take maternity leave. By Law you may not work later than two weeks before your estimated date of delivery.
