Q. An employee who has used all his paid time off has asked for a leave of absence to attend the Republican National Convention. He is a delegate. Are we required to grant the leave?
A. Yes. An employee who is a delegate or an alternate delegate to a major political party convention may take a leave of absence from work to attend the convention if the employee gives the employer at least 10 days’ written notice.
If the employee gives proper notice, the employer may not impose any penalty on the employee other than a deduction from salary or wages for the time lost. An employer that violates this provision is guilty of a misdemeanor.
