Family Care Leave
VMware is dedicated to work-life balance and offers a family-friendly environment that is supportive of working parents. VMware provides Family Care Leave in accordance with statutory requirements so that you can take the necessary time off work to care for your sick child.
Under the Work and Care Act, you are entitled to take a maximum of two (2) weeks Family Care Leave per calendar year, to look after your sick child living at home, or your own parents, or your partner. VMware will pay 70% of the (minimum) wage during your Family Care Leave. Under the Work and Care Act, you are entitled to take a maximum of six (6) weeks unpaid leave (on a part-time basis if possible) per calendar year, to look after sick children, parents, or your partner with a life-threatening disease.
Scheduling Family Care Leave
- Discuss your Family Care Leave plans, in advance, with your manager. If, for unavoidable reasons, a request could not be made in advance, 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 Family Care Leave.
- Once agreed with your manager, enter your Family Care Leave time off in Workday [VMware network access required] under time off type Family Care Time Off (Hours) – Unpaid. You may record your leave in blocks of 8 hours (1 day) or 4 hours (half day).
Returning to Work
- Contact your manager to confirm your return to work date.
