Vacation Time Off

Vacation Time Off provides you with paid time off from your job for personal reasons including vacation, outside activities, and personal business. If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Time Off page.


All regular, part time and fixed term contract employees (on company payroll) are eligible for Vacation Time Off. The annual leave cycle runs from 1 January to 31 December each year.


Your vacation time off entitlement is calculated based on your service at the beginning of the vacation year.

Unless otherwise stated in your contract of employment, you will be entitled to the statutory 20 working days (4 weeks) of vacation time off per annum, plus the following additional days –

  • 21 days for team members over 25 years of age
  • 22 days for team members over 28 years of age
  • 23 days for team members over 31 years of age
  • 24 days for team members over 33 years of age
  • 25 days for team members over 35 years of age
  • 26 days for team members over 37 years of age
  • 27 days for team members over 39 years of age
  • 28 days for team members over 41 years of age
  • 29 days for team members over 43 years of age
  • 30 days for team members over 45 years of age

Employees are entitled to the above age-related additional vacation days in the calendar year in which they reach the relevant age.

These vacation days are in addition to public holidays employees are entitled to under the Hungarian Labor Law Employment Regulations. If you start or leave your employment during a vacation year, your vacation time off entitlement for that vacation year will accrue pro rata per complete calendar day worked.

Scheduling Vacation Time Off

  • Discuss your Vacation plans, in advance, with your manager. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that workload does not restrict you from taking Vacation Leave.
  • Once agreed with your manager enter your Vacation Time Off in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Vacation Time Off (Days).

Carry Forward

Carrying forward Leave Entitlement is not encouraged by VMware as we encourage you to take rest from work during each Leave Cycle. You may carry forward up to 5 days unused vacation days to the next period.

If however, you weren’t able to take your vacation days due to illness or any other reason, any unused vacation balance will carry forward to the next vacation year.
