Texas Woman's University Staff Handbook
Employee Benefits: Military Leave

University employees who are members of the State Military Forces or the reserve components of the Armed Forces are entitled to a leave of absence not to exceed 15 working days in a federal fiscal year for authorized training or duty without loss pay or benefits. A federal fiscal year is October 1 through September 30. The 15 days need not be consecutive. After exhausting the 15 days, the employee may use accrued annual leave or be placed on LWOP status (or a combination of the two) for the remainder of the active duty period.

 A university employee called to state active duty as a member of the state military forces by the Governor because of an emergency is entitled to receive emergency leave without loss of military or annual leave. This leave is not limited and will be provided without a deduction in salary.

For additional information on Military Leave, please refer to 3.15 "Military Leave" policy.
