Annual Leave

Annual Leave provides you with paid time off from your job for personal reasons including vacation, outside activities, and personal business. If your absence is due to an illness or injury, you should refer to the Sick Leave page.


VMware employees who have been employed for a full preceding year are eligible for Annual Leave. Specific rules apply to employees who have not worked a full preceding year.


VMware provides twenty (28) days of paid Annual Leave per calendar year for full time employees and an additional 8 calendar days for irregular working hours.

Unless otherwise approved by the employee’s manager, the employee’s entitlement to annual paid leave shall only commence after the employee has worked a continuous period of 6 months.

Scheduling Annual Leave
