Florida, like many other states, has a law on the books requiring employers to give CAP members time off for training and missions. (Text of the law [here](http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?mode=View%20Statutes&SubMenu=1&App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=civil+air+patrol&URL=0200-0299/0252/Sections/0252.55.html))

My employer has no policy allowing for CAP leave, and I'm being told that I need to use my banked time off for CAP activities. Does anyone's employer have a policy on CAP leave? Would you mind sharing it as an example for my employer?

The vast majority of us use our PTO.

The moment any commander or staff member considers themselves a gatekeeper, instead of a facilitator, they have failed at their job.
I can't fix all of CAP's problems, but I can lead from the bottom by building my squadron as a center of excellence to serve as an example of what every unit can be.

Ask them if their advice holds in light of a copy of a statute.

If it does, decide on if the battle is worth your job.
