2.1.18 Military Leave

Last updated on:

The Uniformed Service Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 ("USERRA") prohibits employers from discriminating against employees who fulfill non-career military obligations in the Uniformed Services. It also requires employers to provide a leave of absence to allow employees to perform military obligations. Separately, the Family Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") entitles eligible employees to take leave for a "qualifying exigency" when a covered family member is called to active duty or to care for a covered family member who is injured in the line of duty.

This policy provides military leaves as required by these and other laws and complies with the other relevant provisions of USERRA, other related regulations or as approved by Stanford University.

This Guide Memo outlines the policy to resolve staff employee complaints at Stanford through a formal grievance process and is designed specifically for regular employees as defined in the "Applicability" section.

The Staff Grievance Process is located in the Address a Workplace Concern section of the Cardinal at Work website.

Employee complaints covered by the Staff Grievance Process include written corrective actions that are placed in an employee’s personnel file (e.g., written warnings) and involuntary terminations (including layoffs) only. The Staff Grievance Process does not apply to employee complaints regarding other issues such as performance appraisals, Performance Improvement Plans, compensation/benefits or job classifications.
