Leave for volunteer members of Civil Air Patrol. Requires state and private employers to allow officers or employees who are volunteer members of the Civil Air Patrol to take leaves of absence from their respective duties without loss of seniority, accrued leave, benefits, or efficiency rating on all days during which such officer or employee is (i) engaged in training for emergency missions with the Civil Air Patrol, not to exceed 10 workdays per federal fiscal year, or (ii) responding to an emergency mission as a Civil Air Patrol volunteer, not to exceed 30 workdays per federal fiscal year. The bill requires any officer or employee requesting leave to provide certification that the officer or employee has been authorized by the United States Air Force, the Governor, or a department, division, agency, or political subdivision of the state to respond to or train for an emergency mission and verification from the Civil Air Patrol of the emergency need of the officer's or employee's volunteer service. The bill allows employers to treat such leaves of absence as unpaid leave but prohibits employers from requiring an officer or employee to exhaust any other leave to which he is entitled prior to such leaves of absence.
