Military Leave

If an employee is required to report for active military duty in any branch of the United States armed forces, the employee is entitled to receive up to 30 days of paid military leave for emergency, temporary and/or indefinite assignments in a fiscal year upon meeting eligibility criteria, if required.

The 30 day paid leave entitlement for temporary military leave is considered separate from the paid entitlement for an emergency or indefinite military leave.

Military leave is granted to eligible employees in accordance with the following state and federal laws:

  • Federal:
    • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) (Title 38, United States Code)
  • State of California:
    • Military and Veterans Code, Section 395, et seq,
    • Education Code Section 89513;
    • Title 5 (Division 5, Chapter 1, Subchapter 7, Article 5.9 Military Leave, Section 43095)

The above laws govern military leave for nonrepresented and represented employees, but may be superseded by current memorandum of understanding (MOU) for represented employees.
