In Vermont, any member of the reserves of the U.S. Armed Forces or the national guard called upon to receive military training or for active duty is eligible for military leave privileges.
Time away from the job for military duty is to be construed as a leave of absence, and it is within the discretion of the employer whether to allow leave with or without pay. The leave of absence does not affect an employee's rights to normal vacation, sick leave, bonus, advancement and seniority which accrues during the absence.
Reinstatement. In Vermont, any member of the reserves of the U.S.
Armed Forces or the national guard called upon to receive military training or
for active duty who leaves employment (other than temporary) must be restored to
his previous or similar position with the same status, pay and seniority. This
protection is afforded to the employee provided the employee gives his employer
evidence of dates of departure and return at least 30 days before departure and
evidence of satisfactory completion after service. The employee must also still
be qualified to perform the job.
