MILITARY LEAVE PROVISION
Employees who are members of the National Guard or Armed Forces Reserve, and who participate in an annual two-week active duty or training program, must provide reasonable advance notice to their supervisor. Employees will be paid the difference between military pay plus allowances received for such duty, and the employee’s normal rate of pay.
Upon return from military leave, employees should submit to the Superintendent a copy of their original duty orders and a statement of their military pay and allowances for the two-week period.
Unpaid military leave for regular tours of active duty or for period of longer training or emergency duty are granted, on written request, to permanent full-time and part-time employees anytime after their dates of employment. Employees may use available paid time off for all or part of the absence. An employee returning from a military leave within time frames specified by federal and state law will be reinstated to his or her former job, or a comparable one, without reduction in pay or time accrued for past service. The employee will be treated as though he or she was continuously employed for purposes of determining benefits based on length of service, such as the rate of vacation accrual and job seniority rights.
