Parental Leave

VMware provides Parental Leave in accordance with statutory requirements so that you can take the necessary time off work to care of your child.


One of the parents is entitled to take parental leave for a period of up to 2 years (3 in case of disability) provided that the other parent takes at least 1 month of time off out of the total leave (parents can’t take the leave simultaneously).

Applying for Parental Leave

You should discuss and agree your intended leave dates with your manager at least 4 weeks in advance. Once approved, please contact the HR Source team by clicking on ‘Ask HR’ icon on the HR Source [1] homepage. The HR Source [1] EMEA team will support you with queries on this leave and will work with the responsible teams to ensure your leave is tracked correctly.

Payment during Shared Parental Leave

During Parental Leave you will receive statutory Parental Leave entitlement only. No additional compensation is provided by the Company.
