The University of Houston System provides leaves of absence for eligible employees
called to active duty by a reserve branch of the United States Armed Forces. Guidelines
for such leaves are presented in this document.
2.1. Employees called to active reservist duty or engaged in duly authorized military
training will be entitled to paid leave of absence not to exceed 15 days in a federal
fiscal (October 1 September 30) year. During this paid leave of absence
employees will not lose time, efficiency rating, vacation time or other benefits
which normally accrue to active employees.
2.2. Employees called to active reservist duty who have exhausted 15 days paid leave
of absence during the federal fiscal (October 1 September 30) year will be
placed on leave of absence without pay. These individuals will accrue state
service credit while on active duty but will not accrue vacation or sick leave.
