Annual Leave allows you to be paid while having time off from work for personal reasons including:
- Vacation used for rest, recreation, or travel.
- Taking Time Out for Loved Ones
If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Leave  page.
Regular full-time employees are entitled to twenty (20) days of Annual Leave year. Annual Leave is pro-rated for newly-hired full-time employee, as per the below:
Pro-Rated Annual Leave
|Month of Hire||Pro-Rated Annual leave|
VMware encourages you to take all Annual Leave credits of the current year during that year, however, you may carry forward up to five (5) days of unused Annual Leave.
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.
