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.

In Kentucky, ESGR volunteers serve across the Commonwealth as area directors, ombudsmen, trainers, and members who visit with civic groups to tell the ESGR story. Other volunteers visit reserve and Guard installations and units to share USERRA information and tell them about the Kentucky Committee’s jobs efforts. Still others may be found handing out ESGR awards to businesses, assisting at job fairs and  doing a myriad of the “little things” that make our committee successful.

The Kentucky ESGR Committee is especially proud to have had two businesses from our state named Freedom Award recipients in 2013!

The committee posts ESGR information and, of great importance to the vast majority of visitors to this site, job openings for reservists and Guard personnel on its Facebook site. See link on the left side of this page.

If you are interested in serving as a volunteer in Kentucky, please contact any of the three fulltime staff at the numbers listed on the left hand side of this web page.
