Military Duty Leave for Employees in Arizona

Filed under Office & HR.

Arizona employers must provide employees with leave for military duty in accordance with these state rules.

Employers in Arizona must allow members of the National Guard or Reserves to take leaves of absence for active duty or to attend maneuvers and the like without affecting the employees' vacation rights, except that leave time is not considered as work time for vacation eligibility.


Upon return to work, an employee must be returned to his previous position, or to a higher position, without loss of seniority, commensurate with his ability, experience and seniority rights.

Prohibited Discrimination

Employers may not deprive a member of the National Guard or Reserves of employment or dissuade anyone from enlisting in the state or U.S. military forces by threat of or actual infliction of physical or economic damage.

A member of the National Guard or Reserves cannot, because of such membership or because of absence from employment under competent military orders, be deprived of employment or prevented or obstructed in obtaining employment in the person's trade, occupation or profession.
