BILL NUMBER:S4440 REVISED 05/20/11

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the military law, in relation to granting public officers and
employees paid military leave for sixty total days or forty-four working
days

PURPOSE:
This legislation would amend the Military Law to extend the period of
time for which a public officer or employee shall be paid their salary
or other compensation during periods of absence while they are
engaged in the performance of ordered military duty not exceeding
sixty days or forty-four working days, whichever is greater.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation would amend Section 242(5) of the Military Law to
increase paid leave when a public officer or employee is engaged in
the performance of military duty from thirty to sixty calendar days
and from twenty-two to forty-four working days, whichever is greater.

JUSTIFICATION:
Due to the war effort there are now thousands more National Guard and
Reserve personnel who require, and are undergoing military training.
This has extended the amount of time required to train military
personnel past the originally allotted 22 working days. However, the
MTA and most employers, refuse to honor anything past 22 working
days, and won't cover the increase in training hours, in their pay.
As a result, when an employee has exhausted both their calendar and
working day balances, the only way they can receive pay for ordered
military leave is to use up their vacation, AVA's and personal leave
days.

A solution to this problem would be to extend the currently covered
leave period, to something greater than 22 working days. This bill
would extend the current leave time from 22 working days to 44
working days, with a possible extension of up to 60 calendar days of
leave, whichever is greater.

This would, if enacted, ameliorate the current situation, where
members ordered to Military Duty, and who require more leave days for
military training, would receive adequate compensation.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
