Blood Donation Leave

VMware provides time off for donating blood in accordance with Italian law.


You are entitled to a rest period, off work, for the entire day (8 hours) on which you donate blood. 

There is no limitation to the number of paid Blood Donation Leave days, however, Italian law defines the maximum number of donations per year and the minimum interval between donations of blood and/or blood components. Men and women not in reproductive age can donate blood no more than four (4) times per year, while women in reproductive age no more than two (2) times per year. 

A period of at least ninety (90) days must pass between each blood donation (whole blood).
