Military Duty Leave for Employees in Arizona

Discrimination. Employers may not deprive a member of the National Guard of employment or dissuade anyone from enlisting in the state or U.S. military forces by threat of or actual infliction of physical or economic damage.

Employers in Arizona must allow members of the National Guard to take leaves of absence for active duty or to attend maneuvers and the like without affecting the employees' vacation rights, except that leave time is not considered as work time for vacation eligibility.

Reinstatement. Upon return to work, an employee must be returned to his previous position, or to a higher position, without loss of seniority, commensurate with his ability, experience and seniority rights.
