Veterans Day Leave in Iowa (IA) Employers in Iowa are required to grant leave as follows: An employer must provide each employee who is a veteran (as defined under state law) with paid or unpaid holiday time off for Veterans Day if he or she would otherwise be required to work on that day, unless providing time off would impact public health/safety or would cause the employer to experience significant economic or operational disruption. An employee who wishes to take time off must provide the employer with: At least one month's prior written notice of the employee's intent to take time off for Veterans Day; and A federal certificate of release or discharge from active duty, or such similar federal document, for purposes of determining the employee's eligibility for the leave benefit. At least 10 days prior to Veterans Day, the employer must notify the employee if he or she will be provided paid or unpaid time off on Veterans Day. If the employer is unable to provide time off for Veterans Day for all employees who request time off, the employer must deny time off to the minimum number of employees needed by the employer to protect public health/safety or to maintain minimum operational capacity, as applicable.
