|Subject:||Military Leave of Absence - Former HB 173|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that will further clarify the application of military leave under Title 51 of the Military Affairs Code.
Specifically, I plan to amend Section 4102 of Title 51 of the Military Affairs Code to:
My proposal is to ensure that our military men and women who also work in civilian jobs are protected from having the law applied unequally by clarifying that a military leave of absence is in addition to regular vacation time and includes an entire day and not someone’s scheduled hours in a shift.
I have heard from individuals whose regular work schedule is beyond the conventional eight hour work day (non over-time) and are having the additional time counted as a 24 hour day (i.e. a firefighter working a 24 hour shift is considered three days leave) and are being required to return to work immediately upon completing active duty, all of which I feel is against the spirit of the law.
