If an employee is required to attend a summer encampment of the Reserves of the Armed Forces or the National Guard, he or she may be granted a special paid leave. If an employee is granted a special paid leave, the institution will pay the difference between the compensation received in the course of such duty (not including travel and per diem) and the expected pay for the period of the service. A copy of Military Orders or an official Military Statement must be submitted to supervision prior to approval. The staff member may schedule vacation at the same time of the duty. In such a case, the employee will receive their regular salary but it will be charged to their vacation and the employee may keep the reserve salary.
Seniority continues to accrue during any military leave, and the institution will comply with applicable legal requirements governing military leave.
