ESGR, a Department of Defense office, is comprised of dedicated and trained volunteers and staff. We will develop and promote employer support for Guard and Reserve service by advocating relevant initiatives, recognizing outstanding support, increasing awareness of applicable laws, and resolving conflict between employers and Service members.

ESGR informs and educates Service members and their civilian employers regarding their rights and responsibilities governed by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). ESGR does not have statutory authority to enforce, but serves as a neutral, free resource to employers and service members. ESGR’s trained ombudsmen provide mediation of issues relating to compliance with USERRA.

TACOMA, Wash. – When a parent deploys, the one remaining behind must take on both roles and all the challenges. Also affected, outside the family, are the employer, not only of the deployed parent, but the employer of the parent remaining behind. One loses an employee for a while and the other may be asked to give more. However, many employers step forward to support their employee, whether it is the one deployed or the one shouldering extra burdens at home.
