Take “me time” when you need it.
The best way to maintain a balanced life is to take some breaks from work and dedicate time to fun, friends, family, and of course—yourself. We have programs to help you take time off to care for what really matters in your life, whether that means a visit to the doctor, taking care of a family member, or just some “me time.”
Vacation, Sick Time, and Holidays
Vacation and Sick Time
Proofpoint provides employees with a flexible vacation program. You simply coordinate your time off needs with your manager and submit your request for time off in Workday.
Depending on location, full-time employees receive up to twelve (12) days or ninety-six (96) hours of paid sick time per year. Part-time employees are eligible for six (6) days or forty-eight hours of paid sick time per year.
Proofpoint generally provides 10 paid holidays per year for employees. In addition, 4 company-wide wellbeing days are available for employees to take a break, go offline, and recharge. The dates and holidays observed are subject to the calendar year.
In the event of a death of a family member (spouse, opposite sex domestic partner, same sex domestic partner, child, parent, parent-in-law, grandparent or sibling) living in the same state as the employee, Regular Full-time and Regular Part-time employees may take paid leave of up to five (5) consecutive days. Eligible employees who need to travel out of state may take paid leave of up to five (5) consecutive days. Employees must obtain their supervisor’s prior approval in the event that additional unpaid time off is needed.
When taking Bereavement Leave, please record the amount of time taken off in Workday.
Family Care and Enhanced Medical/Disability Leave
Employees who’ve been employed more than 12 months and worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months preceding their request for leave are eligible to take (12) weeks paid Family Care or Medical Leave in a 12-month period for the following reasons:
- The birth, adoption, or foster placement of a child.
- To care for an employee’s spouse, registered domestic partner, child or parent with a serious health condition.
- The serious health condition of the employee.
While on approved Family Care or Medical Leave, company-paid group health insurance coverage remains in effect for a maximum of 12 weeks (or up to 26 weeks if leave is to care for a member of the Armed Forces). Dependent coverage will remain in effect if the employee continues to pay his or her portion of the cost.
Proofpoint is dedicated to work-life balance and offers a family-friendly environment that supports working parents. Bringing a new child into the family is an exciting time, and there’s a lot to think about. Proofpoint provides specific benefits and resources to help you through the process.
Parental Leave: Up to 6 weeks of paid time off (100% of your based salary), allowing for bonding within the first year with your child. To be eligible, you must be the mother or father of a child under the age of two (2) years and live in the same household as the child.
Pregnancy Disability Leave: Up to 12 weeks of paid time off (100% of base salary) in conjunction with applicable state and/or disability benefits payments.
