Jury Duty

Effective Date: Fall 2017

Replenish encourages employees to fulfill their civic responsibilities when called upon to serve as a juror. Employees must provide their immediate supervisor with a copy of their jury summons as soon as possible so that the supervisor may make arrangements to accommodate their absence.

Employees on jury duty must report to work on workdays, or parts of workdays, when they are not required to serve. Either Replenish or the employee may request an excuse from jury duty if it is determined that the employee’s absence would create serious operational difficulties.

Jury duty will be paid if required by applicable state law. If paid, jury duty pay will be calculated on the employee’s base pay rate times the number of hours the employee would otherwise have worked on the day of absence.

Military Leave

Effective Date: Fall 2017

Replenish proudly grants employees time off of work for service in the uniformed services in accordance with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).All employees requesting time off for military service must provide advance notice of military service to their immediate supervisor, unless military necessity prevents such notice or it is otherwise impossible or unreasonable. Continuation of health insurance benefits is available during military leave subject to the terms and conditions of the group health plan and applicable law.

Employees are eligible for re-employment for up to five (5) years from the date their military leave began. The period an individual has to make application for reemployment or report back to work after military service is based on time spent on military duty. For service of less than 31 days, the service member must return at the beginning of the next regularly scheduled work period on the first full day after release from service, taking into account safe travel home plus an eight-hour rest period. For service of more than 30 days but less than 181 days, the service member must submit an application for reemployment within 14 days of release from service. For service of more than 180 days, an application for reemployment must be submitted within 90 days of release from service.Employees who qualify for re-employment will return to active employment at a pay level and status equal to that which they would have attained had they not entered military service. They will be treated as though they were continuously employed for purposes of determining benefits based on length of service.Questions regarding this policy should be directed to management.
