  • SAD / LEL / Mil Leave

    5 U.S. Code §5519

    Crediting amounts received for certain Reserve or National Guard service

    An amount (other than a travel, transportation, or per diem allowance) received by an employee or individual for military service as a member of the Reserve or National Guard for a period for which he is granted military leave under section 6323(b) or (c) shall be credited against the pay payable to the employee or individual with respect to his civilian position for that period.

    (Added Pub. L. 90–588, §?2(b), Oct. 17, 1968, 82 Stat. 1152; amended Pub. L. 102–378, §?2(39), Oct. 2, 1992, 106 Stat. 1351Pub. L. 104–106, div. A, title V, §?516(b), Feb. 10, 1996, 110 Stat. 309.)

    So, when using the 22 days his Technician check will be offset by the amount he is paid while on SAD.

    So, if the employee earns $1500 as a technician

    And earned $500 while on SAD

    His Technician check is offset by the $500 amount:

    $1500

    -$500

    $1000 – this would be in his technician check.

    Emergency military leave. Under 5 USC 6323 (b), employees may take 22 days of emergency military leave when the president, secretary of Defense, or a state governor calls them to active duty to support civil authorities or a military contingency operation. Employees receive the greater of the military or civilian compensation, not both. This offset does not include travel, transportation, or per diem allowances.

    • Reservists or National Guard members who perform military duty in support of civil authorities in the protection of life and property are eligible for an additional 22 workdays of military leave under 5 USC 6323 (b).
    • An employee is eligible for the additional 22 days of leave only when activated for full-time military duty under Sections 10 USC 331 , 10 USC 332 , 10 USC 333 , or 10 USC 12406 , or other provision of law, as applicable, or when activated for full-time military service for his state.
    • Under 5 USC 5519 , the military pay received by an individual who has been activated to support civil authorities in the protection of life and property must be credited (less any travel, transportation, or other per diem allowances) against any federal civilian pay the employee received during the 22 workdays of military leave.

    • While on SAD tour, if the employee gets hurt, they are covered under the State’s workmen’s comp and usually have to pay their medical bills upfront.
    • If an employee gets put on SAD, they can use the 22 days mil leave, come off SAD and be a technician for one day, then go back on a SAD and use another 22 days of this type of leave.

    In the case of an employee or individual employed on a part-time career employment basis (as defined in section 3401(2) of this title), the rate at which leave accrues under this subsection shall be a percentage of the rate prescribed under paragraph (1) which is determined by dividing 40 into the number of hours in the regularly scheduled workweek of that employee or individual during that fiscal year.
