Sick Leave

VMware encourages a healthy working environment. When you or your dependent aren’t feeling well, Sick Leave provides you with paid time off to rest and recuperate at home in in accordance with statutory requirements. You may use Sick Leave for:

  • Personal sickness or injury; or
  • To provide care or support for a member of the employee’s immediate family or household who requires care or support due to personal illness or injury, or an emergency.


Regular, full-time employees are entitled to thirty (30) days of Sick Leave per year. A medical certificate is required if you will be absent for one (1) day or more. The certificate should be presented to your manager on the first day that you return to work.

You are also be eligible for sixty (60) days of Hospitalization Leave in a year (inclusive of thirty (30) days of Sick Leave) in the event you are hospitalized.

  • It is supported by a medical certificate
  • It is reported to your manager when the illness occurs
