Ohio University will grant military leave of absence without pay beyond the 176 hours required by State and Federal laws, to permanent employees with at least ninety days of employment with the University who are inducted or otherwise enter military service. The duration of a leave of absence for military service will be subject to the provisions of the Ohio Revised Code in effect at the time. Additionally, pay and insurance coverage for employees called to active duty for more than 176 hours will comply with Ohio Revised Code 5923.05 and 5923.051, and with any other applicable state or federal laws.
Those persons filling a position of an employee on military leave will be advised that the position is temporary and that the employee on military leave has reemployment rights. An employee on military leave forfeits reinstatement rights if he or she exceeds the five-year cumulative voluntary military service limit. The five-year cumulative voluntary military service limit does not include: inactive duty training (drill); annual training; involuntary recall to or retention on active duty; voluntary or involuntary active duty in support of a war, national emergency, or certain other operational missions; or additional training requirements determined and certified in writing by the service secretary and considered to be necessary for professional development or for completion of skill training or retraining.
Time for reinstatement application and time limits for returning to work depend on the duration of the orders:
Prompt return to work will depend on individual circumstances of the department. However, return to work should occur in a matter of days, and at most two weeks.
Other provisions of applicable State or Federal law will be observed in considering employment rights and benefits relating to veterans, members of the National Guard, and other covered military components.
