Leave for Immediate Family Members of Military Personnel Injured or Killed in Active Service
Under Minnesota law, an employer with one or more employees must grant up to ten working days of a leave of absence without pay to an employee whose immediate family member has been injured or killed while engaged in active service as a member of the United States armed forces. The amount of leave may be reduced by any period of paid leave provided by the employer. The employee must provide as much notice as practicable of the employee’s intent to use this type of leave. See Minn. Stat. § 181.947.
