The College complies with and supports the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA). USERRA applies to persons who perform duty in the "uniformed services" including service in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, as well as the reserve components of each of these services. Uniformed Service includes active duty, active duty for training, inactive duty for training (such as drills), and initial active duty training, as well as the period for which a person is absent from a position of employment for the purpose of an examination to determine fitness to perform any such duty. If you are a member of the armed services or become a member you should inform the Executive Director of Human Resources so your rights under USERRA and the College's policies and procedures are handled appropriately in the event you need to be away from work for military service.

Notice of Military Service

Any employee entering any category of training or military service must provide advance written notification to their immediate supervisor and the Executive Director of Human resources that they will be leaving their job for military training or service, unless giving such notice is impossible or is precluded by some military necessity. The cumulative length of absence for any employee taking military leaves may not exceed five years.

Re-Employment Rights

An employee whose military service is from one to thirty days must return to work at the beginning of their next regularly scheduled work period on the first full day after release from service (taking into account safe travel home plus an eight-hour rest period.) An employee who has served more than thirty days but fewer than 180 days must submit an application for re-employment within 14 days of his or her release from military service. An employee who has served more than 180 days must make an application for re-employment and submit it within 90 days after completing military service. Any re-employment application may be in writing or oral, but must clearly indicate that the person is seeking to return to work after their service in the military. If an employee is discharged under other than honorable conditions, he or she will not be entitled to re-employment rights.
