National Guard or Reservists Called to Active Duty

Upon completion of military leave, Amazon will make reasonable efforts to reinstate qualified associates to the position they would have held had their employment not been interrupted by military service. To be eligible to return to work, the associate must (1) give notice prior to taking military leave of their intent to return to work; (2) must not have been released from service under dishonorable or other punitive conditions; and (3) apply for reemployment (for leaves longer than 30 days) and report to work in a timely manner.

Salary Differential 

Regular full-time and regular part-time associates who are members of the Armed Forces Reserves or National Guard who are ordered to annual active duty training are eligible for a leave of absence and military differential pay up to a full year. Regular full-time and part-time associates who are called into temporary special duty, enlist, or are drafted are also eligible for an unpaid leave of absence.

If your military compensation for annual active duty training is less than your regular base salary or wages, you will receive compensation for the difference. Military differential pay can cover multiple weekend trainings over the course of the military fiscal year if working weekends is part of your regular work schedule.

Extended Medical Coverage

For military leaves of absence that do not exceed 31 days, associates will continue to receive health benefits (medical, dental and vision insurance) by paying their usual share of premium contributions. For military leaves that exceed 31 days, associates will continue to receive coverage until the end of the month following the first 31 days of their leave of absence. Beyond this, associates will be given the option to continue health insurance coverage for up to 24 months by paying the full cost of premiums through COBRA.
