Cash Out

VMware only permits the cashing out of unused Annual Leave when an employee resigns or ceases to be employed for any reason. At that time the full accumulated/outstanding leave entitlement is paid out.

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.
