Paid Military Leave for Public Employees in Oregon

By CAPT Samuel F. Wright, JAGC, USN (Ret.)

Oregon law provides as follows concerning paid military leave for employees of the state and its political subdivisions: "(1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, for all periods of annual active duty for training as a member of the National Guard, National Guard Reserve or of any reserve component of the Armed Forces of the United States or of the United States Public Health Service, any officer or employee of the state, or of any county, municipality or other subdivision of the state, is entitled, upon application therefor, to a leave of absence from duties for a period not exceeding 15 days in any one training year, without loss of time, pay or regular leave and without impairment of efficiency rating or other rights or benefits to which the officer or employee is entitled. "(2) Unless the officer or employee has been employed by the state or by any county, municipality or other political subdivision of the state for a period of six months next preceding application, no officer or employee is entitled to receive pay for any period during which the officer or employee is on military leave. "(3) As used in this section, "training year" means the federal fiscal year for any particular unit of the National Guard or a reserve component." (Oregon Revised Statutes, section 408.290.)
