The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve aids business owners in navigating obligations to Reservists
Many businesses and local government agencies hire veterans and members of the Guard and Reserve. The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is a program created in 1972 to assist businesses in their obligations to their employees who are serving in the National Guard or Reserves.
Dr. Darrell Page, who volunteers his time with the ESRG, said the idea is to help employers by assisting them with easing conflicts that can arise from an employees military service. Dr. Page said that a business can not fire a Reservist for needing to miss work for drills or due to deployments.
The ESRG also recognizes civilian employers for their efforts in supporting their employees who are veterans or who are members of the National Guard or Reserves.
