           Subdivision 1.  [LEAVE AUTHORIZED.] A state employee who is 
        a certified disaster service volunteer of the American Red Cross 
        may be granted leave from work with 50 100 percent of pay, not 
        to exceed 15 working days in each year, to participate in 
        specialized disaster relief services for the American Red 
        Cross.  The employee must be released from work for this 
        function upon the request of the American Red Cross for the 
        services of that employee, and upon the approval of that 
        employee's appointing authority.  The appointing authority shall 
        compensate the employee granted leave under this section at 50 
        100 percent of the employee's regular rate of pay for those 
        regular hours during which the employee is absent from work.  
        This leave, if granted by the appointing authority, may not 
        affect the employee's vacation leave, pension, compensatory 
        time, personal vacation days, sick leave, earned overtime 
        accumulation, or cause a loss of seniority.
