Anne Janks of Can My Boss Do That?, a website run by a group of nonprofits to provide information to workers about their rights sends along this interesting piece of news. Iowa passed a law this past Spring requiring that employers give veterans Veterans Day off. See here for the text of the statute. All employers are covered, but there are some exceptions for public safety or significant disruption to the employer's business. And the leave can be unpaid. Still, it seems a pretty reasonable requirement.
