Taking time off from work is important for your overall well-being and productivity in both your professional and personal life. You may also find the need to take extended time away from work for health, family, or other reasons.

Nutanix offers a variety of benefits that allow you time to relax, recover, care for family members, honor personal commitments, and more.

Vacation

Exempt Employees

Nutanix does not have a prescribed number of vacation days or a “paid time off” practice for exempt employees: we offer “flexible time off” away from work for you to re-charge and come back to work refreshed. You work directly with your manager to arrange for time off and capture your time away in Workday. You continue to receive your regular pay when you take time away from work for vacation. Be sure to request and schedule time off as far in advance as possible, so your manager can ensure adequate coverage while you’re away.

Non-exempt Employees

Non-exempt employees accrue vacation time based on years of service. You work directly with your manager to arrange time off and capture your time away in Workday. You will continue to receive your regular pay for the time you take off when using your accrued vacation. Be sure to request and schedule time off as far in advance as possible, so your manager can ensure adequate coverage while you’re away.

Sick/Disability

Even the most health conscious people get sick sometimes. When that happens, you can count on Nutanix to allow you time to rest or receive treatment.

Sick days:

  • For exempt employees: if you are sick and unable to work, you should notify your manager as soon as possible and capture your time away in Workday. You will continue to receive your regular pay for up to 5 business days when you need to take time away from work due to an illness. After 5 consecutive business days, you will apply for short-term disability benefits.
  • For non-exempt employees: you have a total of 10 days of Paid Sick Leave (PSL) available to you if you are sick and unable to work. Please notify your manager as soon as possible that you are unable to come to work. When you return, capture your time away in Workday. If you are sick more than 5 consecutive business days, you will apply for short-term disability benefits.

Short-term disability:

If you need more time, you can receive company-paid short-term disability (STD) benefits if you are an active, full-time employee who works at least 30 hours a week. Apply for STD benefits through The Hartford and state disability insurance benefits (where applicable). Coverage begins after 7 calendar days of disability and pays up to 60% of your weekly base salary, with a maximum of $2,310 per week. STD benefits can last up to 26 weeks as long as you are on an approved disability leave.

Long-term disability:

For longer illnesses or injuries, you can receive company-paid long-term disability (LTD) benefits if you are an active, full-time employee who works at least 30 hours a week. Coverage begins after you have been disabled for 180 days and pays 60% of your monthly base salary, with a maximum of $10,000 per month.

For more information, see the Disability Insurance section.

Family Leave

Sometimes you need to take an extended period of time away from work to care for a new baby or family member or to recover from an illness. Through the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), you may be eligible to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave.

Qualifying situations include:

  • Your own serious health condition that makes you unable to perform the functions of your job (runs concurrently with short-term disability (STD).
  • A serious health condition of your child, spouse, or parent that requires you to care for that family member.
  • The birth of a child that requires you to take time off to care for the child (six or eight weeks depending on natural or Cesarean childbirth; will run concurrently with STD).
  • The placement of a child with you for adoption or foster care.
  • Covered military family leave.

Leave Eligibility

To be eligible for Family and Medical Leave:

  • You must have worked for the company for at least 12 months and at least 1,250 hours during the year preceding the start of the leave.
  • There must be at least 50 company employees within 75 miles of your work site.

Personal Leave

You may be able to take an unpaid leave of absence for nonmedical personal matters, including family matters not covered under Family and Medical Leave. A Personal Leave of Absence is an unpaid, unprotected leave, available to employees for necessary, individual reasons. Approval is at the discretion of Management. Job performance, absenteeism and departmental requirements will be taken into consideration during the decision process.

See the Employee Handbook for more details.

Military Leave

To support your service to your country, you may be eligible for an approved leave of absence consistent with the requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA).

See the Employee Handbook for more details.

Jury Duty/Witness Leave

If you are a regular full-time employee called to jury duty or subpoenaed to serve as a witness, you will receive your regular base pay while serving up to five days per year. Please capture your jury duty/witness services in Workday.

See the Employee Handbook for more details.

Volunteer Time Off (VTO)

The Nutanix Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program was created to support our employees’ efforts to give back to their local (and global) communities by permitting them to take time off for volunteer activities during the business day.
