Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Veterans Day Act. Provides that an employer shall provide each employee who is a veteran with paid or unpaid time off for Veterans Day, November 11, if the employee would otherwise be required to work on that day, in accordance with the provisions of the Act. Provides that an employer, in complying with the Act, shall have the discretion of providing paid or unpaid time off on Veterans Day. Provides that an employer may only refuse to grant paid or unpaid time off as requested under the Act when providing time off would impact public health or safety or would cause the employer to experience significant economic or operational disruption. Provides that if the employer determines that the employer is unable to provide time off for Veterans Day, the employer shall deny time off only to the minimum number of veteran employees needed by the employer to protect public health or safety or to maintain minimum operational capacity, as applicable. Contains provisions concerning notices and penalties.
