Policy on Supplement to Military Pay
The University of California would like to assist to the extent possible University academic and staff personnel who are serving on active military duty in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist actions. Effective immediately, a special supplement will be paid to employees who have been called to or volunteer for active military duty during Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Noble Eagle (the anti-terrorism and homeland defense campaigns), or any other active military duty meant to support the President's call for a war on terrorism as a result of the September 11 attacks. These employees will be compensated for the difference between their University base pay and their military pay and allowances for a period not to exceed 180 calendar days, or until the conclusion of their University appointment, whichever comes first. Such pay will be retroactive to the first day of unpaid military leave. Faculty members of the Health Sciences Compensation Plan will be reimbursed for the difference between their combined University base salary and the negotiated components of such plans (exclusive of incentive payments) and their military pay and allowances. Employees compensated under the Staff Physicians and Dentists Compensation Plan will be reimbursed for the difference between their combined University base salary and non-base salary (exclusive of incentive payments).
Under current University personnel policies and most collective bargaining agreements, employees who have completed 12 months of continuous University service receive their regular University pay for the first 30 calendar days of military duty in a fiscal year. A few collective bargaining agreements provide 30 calendar days of regular University pay to all employees covered under such agreements, regardless of length of service. The 180 days of supplemental pay is in addition to the 30 days pay that eligible employees receive.
Implementing guidelines1 will be issued under separate cover by Assistant Vice Presidents Lubbe Levin and Ellen Switkes.
