LEHI -- Lehi city employees will be eligible for medical insurance and some other job benefits if they leave for active military duty.
The Daily Herald of Provo says the city council has unanimously approved a policy that makes city staff who deploy for military service eligible for a paycheck that makes up the difference between their city salary and active duty pay.
Employees will also be eligible for medical insurance through the city.
Under the new policy, Lehi city employees who are already deployed and those who join the military in the future are eligible for the pay and benefits.'
The federal Military Rights Act requires employers to hold a deployed employee's job and hire them back for up to five years after they are deployed.
