The University recognizes the right of every employee to maintain reserve membership in the Armed Forces of the United States or the National Guard. For routine periods of active duty (e.g., summer training), the University pays the difference between the employee’s regular base salary and the amount received from duty services for a maximum of 15 working days per year. Any additional time required for training or time needed for other purposes related to reserve membership may be taken as leave without pay or as annual leave (staff) or personal leave (Clerc Center teachers).
If a regular status employee is ordered to active military duty for a national or international emergency, the University pays the difference between the employee’s regular base salary and the amount received for duty services for a maximum of one year. Any additional time may be taken as annual leave (staff), personal leave (Clerc Center teachers), and/or leave without pay. Extended temporary employees and employees paid by a grant are eligible for compensation during the term of their appointment only rather than for one year.
