Annual Leave provides you with paid time off from your job that allows you to be paid while having time off from work for personal reasons including:
If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Leave page.
VMware grants annual leave to all employees based on what year of employment you are in. For the first year of your employment, Annual Leave is granted based on the month when you are hired:
First Year of Employment Entitlement
|Hire Month||Annual Leave|
|January – June||10 days|
Starting with your second year of employment (which will be the first January 1st to come after you join VMware), twenty (20) days of Annual Leave will be granted each calendar year.
If you work less than 80% of the total working days during the previous employment year, your Annual Leave entitlement will not be granted. Absences caused by any of the following reasons, will not be counted in the calculation of working days:
- Work‑related injury or illness;
- Child‑Care Leave;
- Nursing Care Leave;
- Annual Leave; or
- Maternity Leave
If you are on a probationary period, the preceding does not apply to you, however, if you are eventually employed as a regular employee, the date of your employment as a probationary employee will be considered to be the date on which you joined VMware.
You can carry forward up to twenty (20) days per calendar year. Annual Leave that is carried forward must be used within the following calendar year.
VMware does not cash-out any unused Annual Leave.
Scheduling Annual Leave
- Discuss your Annual Leave plans, in advance, with your manager. If an absence is unexpected, you should notify your manager as soon as possible. While business requirements must be taken into consideration, your manager will work with you to ensure that work load does not restrict you from taking Vacation time.
- Once agreed with your manager, enter your Annual Leave in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Vacation Time Off. Workday [VMware network access required] will display leave in hourly basis, you may record your leave in blocks of 8 hours (1 day) or 4 hours (half day).
