Military Leave

All regular employees who are members of the South Carolina National Guard or any reserve unit of the United States Armed Forces are entitled to military leave for training or deployment in accordance with state and federal law.

Employees are eligible for up to 15 days (shifts) of military pay for training per year (October – September). For emergency deployments such as those required per operation "Enduring Freedom", an additional 30 days (shifts) will be paid.

An employee going on military leave should present a copy of his/her orders to his Department Director within three (3) days of receiving them. The orders must accompany the application for leave to the Employee Services Department for documentation purposes. For extended leave, employees must contact Employee Services prior to deployment for important benefit information.
