All employees are eligible for job-protected military leave upon reporting for active duty or required field training. Employees receive up to 30 days paid leave per calendar year for duty or training lasting 3 days or more. Most employees are also eligible for up to two additional years of differential pay and eligible benefits while on active duty, and unpaid leave thereafter. The University pays the excess of base over military pay for up to 30 work days per year. The excess of base over military pay plus housing allowance may be paid by the University for up to two years. See UW-System website on Military Leave Benefits.
