A member of the Indiana National Guard is entitled to receive from the member's employer a leave of absence from the member's respective duties, in addition to the member's regular vacation period, for the total number of days that the member is on state active duty. This leave of absence may be with or without loss of time or pay at the discretion of the employer.
Training.--Any reserve member of the armed forces of the United States called upon to receive temporary military training is entitled to a temporary leave of absence from employment, not to exceed 15 days in any one calendar year. That person is required to provide the employer with evidence of the dates of departure and return as soon as practicable prior to departure and is also required to furnish the employer, upon return, with evidence of satisfactory completion of training. Upon return, such person is to be restored to the employee's previous or a similar position, with the same status as held prior to the leave for training. Such leaves may be granted with or without pay within the discretion of the employer.
Temporary leaves of absence are not to affect the rights of the person to vacation leave, sick leave, or other normal benefits of employment.
Reemployment.--An employee is entitled to be restored to the employee's previous position or a similar position, with the same status and pay, if the employee is a duly qualified member of the reserve components of the armed forces, a member of the ready reserve, a member of an organized unit who, in order to receive military training with the armed forces of the United States not to exceed 15 days in any one calendar year, leaves a position other than a temporary position in the employ of any employer, and who gives evidence defining the date of departure and date of return for purposes of military training 90 days prior to the date of departure, and who gives evidence of the satisfactory completion of such training immediately thereafter, and is still qualified to perform the duties of such position.
Seniority is to continue to accrue during such period of absence, and such
period of absence for military training is to be considered as an absence with
leave. Within the discretion of the employer, said leave may be with or without
