  1. Military Reserve Training Leave. Leave time with full pay, less the amount of military pay, will be granted to staff members who are officers or enlisted personnel in the National Guard or the reserve components of the Armed Forces for limited service in field training. The length of such leave shall not exceed the standards established by federal and state agencies for training activities. Such leave will normally be limited to a maximum of fifteen calendar days in each year. The University will require a certificate or voucher of base pay from the military service to determine the adjusted pay for this leave. Military pay received for travel, per diem and similar expenses will not be included in the calculation. 
  2. Jury Duty. Jury duty is recognized as a civic responsibility, and staff members are encouraged to fulfill the obligation as citizens of the community. Staff members will be granted time off with pay to serve on a jury. Active staff employees will be granted time off with pay to serve on a jury. Employees must inform their supervisors as soon as they know what days they will be serving. If the jury duty does not require the full work day, employees are expected to report to their supervisor when free from such service. 
  3. Funeral Leave. Reasonable (normally three days) time off with pay will be granted to staff members when death occurs in the immediate family. Immediate family shall include: mother, father, mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandmother, grandfather, grandchildren, husband, wife, brother, sister, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, son, daughter, or in some cases another relative who is a member of the immediate household. Time off (one day) will also be granted for the employee to serve as a pallbearer for any other family member not listed above or any other acquaintance.
