ANNUAL MILITARY AND EMERGENCY DUTY LEAVE
Any employee who is an active member of any U. S. Armed Forces Reserve or the National Guard of any state shall be relieved from civil duties upon request, therefore, to serve under orders on training duty without loss of regular compensation or vacation leave for a period not to exceed ten working days in any calendar year or as provided by statute.
Absences in excess of ten days per calendar year will be charged to vacation leave or leave without pay.
An employee may be required to submit a copy of orders or other official notice at least two weeks in advance of the date of absence. In the case of an emergency leave, the orders or other official notice may be submitted within a reasonable time after the employee returns to his/her job. Failure to submit proper notice will be justification for not granting leave with pay.
