Military Leaves


Are you or a family member currently in the Armed Forces of the United States, National Guard or Military Reserve Forces?  Washington County provides employees protected time off from work for a variety of qualifying events.


Qualifying events are, but not limited to:


  • Short notice deployment
  • Military events and related activities
  • Childcare and school activities
  • Financial and legal arrangements
  • Counseling
  • Rest and recuperation
  • Post-deployment activities
  • Care for an injured servicemember


The Department of Labor created an "Employees Guide to Military Family Leave" under the Family and Medical Leave Act.  This guide outlines Employee and Employer right and responsibilities and will also assist you in determining if you may qualify for leave.
