12.4.A MILITARY LEAVE: MERIT INCREASES
Under normal circumstances, when a permanent employee goes out on unpaid military leave, s/he will return at the salary step that would have been in place had s/he not been on military leave. In other words, if the employee would have received a merit increase while on military leave, s/he will return at the higher salary step. Similarly, there would be no change in the salary review (merit) date.
