Civil Air Patrol Leave Enacted

Effective December 1, 2023, and applicable to absences from then on, employers can’t discriminate or retaliate against any employee who is a member of the North Carolina Wing – Civil Air Patrol because of their civil air patrol membership or their duty-related absence. A duty-related absence is authorized if the absence is:

  • Necessary to perform duties for a state-approved mission or a mission authorized by the United States Air Force;
  • No longer than seven consecutive scheduled workdays of that employee; and
  • No more than 14 scheduled working days of that employee per calendar year.

Employers may require a copy of the employee’s mission order. Employers aren’t required to pay employees during an authorized absence unless the employee chooses to use any of their paid leave, if available.
