Military Leave

It is the policy of the University to grant leaves of absence to regular full- and part-time staff entering active service, either voluntarily or involuntarily, in the uniformed services of the United States.

Staff who are reservists or National Guard members will be granted time off to participate in summer encampments and/or cruises. Such staff will be reimbursed for the difference between their University base pay and any compensation paid by their Reserve or National Guard unit for up to two weeks in any calendar year.

Staff who are reservists or National Guard members and are involuntarily called to active military service will be reimbursed for the difference between their University base pay and any compensation paid by the active military service organization (base pay, housing allowance, subsistence pay, overseas pay, combat pay, etc.) for up to 12 months. The University reserves the right to extend this period at its sole discretion.

Staff returning from military leave are entitled to the same or similar position, provided they satisfy the return to work provisions.
