I currently serve as the WA State Chair for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) which is a Department of Defense volunteer program.
The ESGR mission is threefold, Employer Outreach, Military Outreach, and Ombudsman program. We provide briefings to employers to insure they understand their legal responsibilities under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment ACT (USERRA). Briefings are also provided to military units to ensure service members understand their protections. USERRA is the federal law which protects National Guard and Reserve service members when they return from a deployment, training, or other military duties and ensures the job they left is available for them when they return. A more comprehensive explanation may be viewed at Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve > USERRA > Frequently Asked Questions (esgr.mil) .
