Military Leave

As many of you know, there has been an issue for some time now with the law that governs paid time off for armed forces related leave and maintaining seniority and the accrual of paid sick, personal and vacation time during such leave.

The good news is you don’t have to spend any time trying to figure out what the above language means because we were able to fix it and expand the benefit.
