Dear Group Leaders..
At the Miami Open House last Saturday, someone suggested petitioning
our local county government to make it easier for county employees to
take time off in mid-career to serve in the Peace Corps. When I
re-upped in 1997, I had to quit my county job. Upon return, I had to
interview and come in as a new employee with no seniority. To assist
us in changing this policy, we would like information as to how job
interruptions for PC service are handled elsewhere.
1. Please identify the city, county or state for which you are
2. Does this city/county/state government provide any employment
benefits to returned PC volunteers?
3. Does the city/county/state hold a job for PCVs or must they quit
4. If there are benefits or sabbaticals offered, how did this policy
Please send information to Zeida at zeida4@....
Thanks for any information and suggestions you can provide..
