Sick Leave

At VMware we encourage a healthy work environment. You are entitled to take Sick Leave in accordance with statutory requirements with the understanding that sick days are solely for recuperating from an illness or injury.


VMware provides paid Sick Leave in accordance to the law for any illness supported by a medical certificate.

An employee is entitled to one day’s paid sick leave for every 26 days worked during the first four months of employment, and thereafter to 30 days paid sick leave for every 36 months worked (the leave cycle).

For prolonged illness you may be eligible for disability payments from the Disability Insurance Plan [1] subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.


Failure to timely provide documentary evidence of temporary disability (illness, accident, etc.), including submission of duly formalized medical certificate, may result in the Employee not being paid sick leave.
