Re-employment after Military Leave
Employees who leave the District to enter into the United States uniformed services or who are ordered to active state military duty (Texas National Guard or Texas State Guard) may return to employment if they are honorably discharged. Employees who wish to return to the District will be re-employed in the position they would have held if employment had not been interrupted or reassigned to an equivalent or similar position provided they can be qualified to perform the required duties. To be eligible for re-employment, employees must provide notice of their obligation or intent to perform military service, provide evidence of honorable discharge or release, and submit an application for re-employment to Granbury ISD Human Resources Department. In most cases, the length of military service cannot exceed five years, and the employee must apply for reemployment within the period of time specified in law.
