What you need to know
You may need time away to take care of yourself or a loved one. Our leave-of-absence programmes have your back.
Types of leave
Welcoming a new baby or adopted child to your family? Let us temporarily subtract one item from your priority list: work. As the mother of your newest family member, you’re eligible to take up to 20 weeks of fully paid maternity leave to recover and bond with your new baby. You get 31 to 37 weeks in the case of multiple births. You can take up to six weeks of your maternity leave before the estimated date of childbirth. Most birth mothers follow up their maternity leave with parental leave.
Your Splunk benefits will continue during your leave, except for any car or transportation allowances. Your vacation time will continue to accrue during your leave.
Are you adding a new baby or adopted child to your family? As the father of your newest family member, you can take up to two weeks of fully paid paternity leave to bond with your new baby or adopted child.
Your Splunk benefits will continue during your leave, including car and transportation allowances. Your vacation time will continue to accrue during your leave.
Whether you’re a mother or a father, Splunk supports you and your family during one of the most important times in your life: adding a new child to your family. You have the right to parental leave immediately following maternity leave. You get 32 weeks of parental leave (34 weeks in the case of multiple births), which can be split into four parts to be used by the time the child is 6 years old.
As much as you love being a Splunker, we know that being a parent is always your top priority. You can take up to 60 days in a calendar year to deal with the following childcare situations:
- You have a child under the age of 8 and their day care or school is closed or your regular caregiver is ill.
- You’re caring for a sick child under the age of 14 (under age 18 if the child is disabled).
- You’re caring for a child with a disability.
While on a childcare leave, you’ll get 80% of your average monthly income, based on the 12 calendar months preceding the month when you begin your leave.
You can take two paid days a year to care for a healthy child up to age 14.
Dependant care leave
If you need to care for a child or other family member as a result of unforeseen circumstances, you can count on state support. You can take an unpaid care leave of five days within a calendar year to care for a family member, or a person living in your household, if they require care or support due to serious medical reasons.
To initiate a dependant care leave, submit a request through the Splunk Service Portal.
As part of our commitment to Splunkers who serve in the military, we provide paid time off for your military reservist duty.
You get 10 days (80 hours) of paid time off for military leave, including, but not limited to, annual training requirements to maintain readiness for military duty.
How to apply for leave
Notify your manager of your need for a leave of absence and duration, so they can plan for business coverage.
Submit a leave request via email to SPOT or by raising a ticket in Splunk Service Portal with any required documentation, which will include your leave start and end dates and the manager's approval. While on your leave, be sure to maintain open communication with your manager about your return.
