Pay offset renewed for active duty Tennessee state workers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Gov. Bill Haslam has renewed an expired executive order to cover any loss of salary by state employees called to active duty by the National Guard or the Armed Forces Reserves.

The measure requires government agencies and departments to extend military leave to state employees. It also requires those agencies to provide offsetting pay when the active-duty wages of their employees are less than their normal salary.

Haslam's order extends a policy first put in place by then-Gov. Don Sundquist in response to state workers being called into active duty after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The policy was continued by former Gov. Phil Bredesen, and Haslam had renewed the annual order twice before.

Haslam's order is retroactive to Aug. 26, when the last version expired.
