Military Leave / Re-employment

Central College honors and respects the rights and obligations of employees to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States in accordance with the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) and state law.   

An employee who is a member of, applies to be a member of, performs, has performed, applies to perform, or has an obligation to perform service in a uniformed service shall not be denied initial employment, reemployment, retention in employment, promotion, or any benefit of employment by Central College on the basis of that membership, application for membership, performance of service, application for service, or obligation.  Likewise, Central College prohibits retaliation against any employee who exercises rights or assists others in exercising rights under USERRA or comparable state law.


A faculty employee or appropriate officer of the branch of the military in which the employee will be serving must give the VPAA/Dean written notice in advance of military service unless military necessity prevents the giving of notice or notice is otherwise impossible or unreasonable.  For complete policy see Military Leave / Re-employment.
