III, C: Notification of Leave

Employees requesting a Military Leave of Absence must provide advance notice of their intent to take military leave and provide copies of their orders (or provide other appropriate documentation to substantiate the need for military leave if orders are not available, ie Special Operations) to their supervisor (who will provide it to payroll for processing), unless doing so is unreasonable or is precluded by military necessity.

This request must include the type of leave, anticipated dates of the leave, and a copy of the military orders.

The type of leave and benefits accorded will vary depending upon the type of military duty or training.

In an emergency situation, if orders are not available at the time of the ordered leave, oral notice should be given as soon as possible, with a copy of the order to be provided to the department as soon as it is available.
