4.58 Military Leave
An employee who is a member of the National Guard or Reserve component of the United States Armed Forces will be granted leave with pay for a period or periods not to exceed 30 days per calendar year, provided the employee is called for field training, active duty, or in connection with an emergency condition (flood, riot, etc.). A copy of the employee's military orders must be filed with the Personnel Services Department prior to the leave period.
The employee will be returned to the employee's former position or one with an equivalent classification and consistent with the individual's qualifications upon application, within 90 days from discharge. A military absence beyond 4 years is considered voluntary and displays intent to relinquish employment rights with the University.
