Parental Leave

VMware provides Parental Leave in accordance with statutory requirements so that you can take the necessary time off work to take care of your child.


To be eligible for Parental Leave you must be the mother or father of a child under the age of three (3) years and have responsibility for the child’s upbringing and have completed one (1) year of service at VMware.


VMware provides one (1) year maximum of unpaid Parental Leave, which may be renewed twice up to a maximum of three (3) years. Parental Leave can be taken either in the form of unpaid leave or as part-time leave and must be taken before your child reaches the age of three (3) years.

You may be eligible for other leaves in addition to Parental Leave. Review the Maternity Leave and Paternity Leave pages for more information.
