Military Leave

Under the Military and Veterans Code, eligible CSU employees normally receive up to thirty (30) calendar days of CSU pay in a fiscal year for active-duty military service. Under certain circumstances, employees on Military Leave may receive additional benefits and pay per CSU policy and Federal Rights under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERA).
