      Reserve Soldiers to Receive Benefit


      The Knesset's Labor, Welfare and Health Committee has approved the first reading of a bill which would require an employer to pay an employee on reserve duty the same pay he would have received had he not been called to reserve duty.

      The bill also states that in cases where an employee returns from reserve duty and the National Insurance Institute gave his employer a payment in excess of regular salary, the employer will be required to pay this amount to the employee.
