Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

Is a member of the National Guard of the District of Columbia eligible for additional military leave under 5 U.S.C. 6323(c)?

Yes. However, military leave under 5 U.S.C.6323(c) may be used only for limited purposes. A Federal civilian employee who is also a member of the DC National Guard is entitled to additional military leave as provided in 5 U.S.C. 6323(c) to participate in a "parade or encampment." The law provides that this type of duty must be authorized under title 49 of the District of Columbia Code. Generally, this category of military leave is limited to drills and training under the authority of the Commanding General of the DC National Guard and is not appropriate for extended active duty in connection with the current national emergency.
