National Guard or Reserve Annual Training
If you are required to complete training in the National Guard or Reserve, vacation is as follows:
You are not required to use all or any part of your vacation to attend required training; however, you may elect to do so. If you elect to complete the required training without pay from the company, you retain your vacation and may schedule it in accordance with this policy.
If you are not eligible for vacation pay or choose not to use vacation during training, time away from the company due to National Guard or Reserve duty will be unpaid, except that an exempt associate’s weekly earnings may not be reduced if the associate works part of the week at the company but misses another part of the week due to National Guard or Reserve duty. If the exempt associate is away from work the entire workweek, and is not eligible for vacation pay or chooses not to use vacation during training, the time away may be deducted for that week.
- In the event you use all vacation time to attend required training, one additional week’s absence with pay from work will be allowed at some other time during the year when it’s convenient to the company.
