VMware encourages you to fulfill your civic responsibilities by Voting and serving Jury Duty.
As a VMware employee, you will receive your regular base pay for time spent in jury service. For non-exempt (hourly) employees, Jury Duty time does not count as “hours worked” for overtime calculations.
Scheduling Jury Duty
- Notify your manager as soon as you receive a jury summons; not the day you are to begin Jury Duty. Your manager may request a copy of the jury summons. Confer with your manager about the expected length and schedule of the jury service. If the jury is not in session, you should work as usual. On days of partial jury service, you are expected to work the remainder of your regular schedule for that day, if practicable.
- After you receive your manager’s approval, non-exempt (hourly) employees, will need to report their Jury Duty time in Workday [VMware network access required].
If you do not have time to vote in local, state or national elections outside of work hours, you may take up to two (2) hours of paid time off of work to vote, or more if individual circumstances require. If time off to vote is needed, you should coordinate with your manager in order to minimize business disruption.
