Leave to Attend Military Ceremonies
Under Minnesota law, any employer with one or more employees must grant an unpaid leave of absence for an employee to attend military ceremonies if the employee’s immediate family member has been ordered into active service in support of a war or other national emergency as a member of the United States armed forces. The employer may limit the amount of leave to the actual time necessary for the employee to attend a send-off or homecoming ceremony for his or her family member, not to exceed one day’s duration in any calendar year. See Minn. Stat. § 181.948.
