Extension of Temporary Enhancement to Military Leave Policy
February 19, 2008, Volume 54, No. 22

The University is committed to supporting our faculty and staff who may be called or volunteer to serve on active military duty. To this end, Penn instituted a temporary enhancement to the Military Leave Policy in 2003 to provide extended paid leave time and benefits for faculty and staff on active military duty. Since 2003, these enhanced benefits have been extended several times. The enhancement period is being extended again until February 28, 2010. Eligible faculty and staff who begin military leave between February 25, 2003 and February 28, 2010 can receive up to 90 calendar days of military pay and benefits within this time period (increased from the standard policy of 10 paid days per fiscal year).  For more information, visit the Human Resources website at www.hr.upenn.edu/policy/policies/611.aspx.
