SECTION 5: LEAVES OF ABSENCE
5.4 MILITARY LEAVE OF ABSENCE

You may request a military leave of absence in order to fulfill military obligations.  The College has no provision to continue pay during such a leave, although you may choose to use accrued vacation to receive pay.  Employees who return to work following military service are granted full reinstatement rights at no loss of seniority or benefits, as specified by Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).  Employees must return to work (if service was for less than 31 days) or apply for reemployment (if service was for more than 31 days).  See Appendix D for USERRA policy information.
