Paid time off (PTO)
Whether you want to take a vacation, run some errands or just read a book, it’s important that you take time away from work to do the things important to you so you can be at your best. You get to choose whether you take it as a vacation day or simply a personal day.
- Full-time employee? Start earning PTO on your first day of employment, and accrue 4.62 hours of PTO per pay period, up to 120 hours a year. Any unused PTO carries over year to year and doesn’t expire. Note: You’ll stop accruing PTO when you reach 180 hours. Refer to the employee handbook for details.
- Part-time employee? Accrue PTO on a prorated basis starting on your first day. The prorated amount depends on the number of hours you regularly work in a 40-hour workweek. Accrual is capped at 4.62 hours of PTO per pay period or 180 hours.
- Temporary employee/intern? Sorry, you’re not eligible for PTO.
Reminder: PTO is not interchangeable with sick time nor is it to be used in lieu of an eligible leave of absence (e.g., FMLA, statutory leave, pregnancy, medical leave).

Doctor visits, medical procedures or just caring for yourself or a family member. Splunk’s sick time policy lets you take care of yourself, so you can get back to doing the things you love.
All employees are immediately eligible for paid sick time. You accrue one hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked. Full-time employees can accrue up to 80 hours of paid sick time each year. All other employees accrue sick time on a prorated basis.
You can carry over unused paid sick time from year to year, up to 80 hours, and it doesn’t expire. Note: Once you hit the 80-hour max, you’ll stop accruing time until your balance drops below the max.
If you need to be off work more than five consecutive sick days to care for your own illness or an ill family member, you will need to file a Leave of Absence request with our leave administrator, The Larkin Company, to determine your eligibility for state, federal and/or other statutory leave (such as the federal Family and Medical Leave Act). Please contact Larkin at 650-938-0933 as soon as possible.
You may also be eligible for potential wage replacement benefits under either Splunk's short-term disability program or a statutory disability insurance or paid leave program. Larkin will inform you of these benefits and the process.
Please note, if you are taking time off due to your own medical condition, you will be required to provide certification to Larkin from a healthcare provider confirming the date you are able to resume work (with or without accommodations) prior to returning to work for Splunk.
Refer to the employee handbook on the Pwny portal to learn more.
Community service is what we’re all about. Whether you volunteer with disaster relief efforts, national charities, schools, or local not-for-profit and community organizations, Splunk supports you.
All employees are eligible for up to 40 hours of paid time off each year to volunteer. You must schedule in advance and receive approval from your manager.

It’s one of your most sacred rights as an American citizen. And we want to make it as easy as possible for you to exercise that right. You receive up to two hours of paid time off, taken at the beginning or end of your workday, to vote on Election Day.
Few of us look forward to receiving that jury notice in the mail, but it’s an important civic duty, and we want to support you in fulfilling it. If you’re a regular full-time or part-time employee, you’re eligible for up to 10 days of paid leave each calendar year for jury duty or other court appearances compelled by subpoena or other court process.
Regular part-time employees are eligible for paid jury duty leave based on hours regularly scheduled to work. Temporary employees, including interns, aren’t eligible for paid jury duty leave.
Be sure to notify your manager as soon as you receive a notice or summons from the court, and initiate a request for approval in Workday.
In the event of the death of a family member, you may take up to 10 work days off with pay per year, based on your regular base pay and normal schedule. Promptly notify your manager of your need to take such leave and initiate your time-off request for approval in Workday. If you need additional time off, talk with your manager about using vacation time or explore taking a leave of absence (e.g., unpaid personal leave, FMLA). Contact our leave administrator to discuss your other leave options.
