ARDEN HILLS, Minn. – Leadership from Minnesota Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve provided an overview briefing and information about ESGR to Minnesota Veterans Employment organizations May 5.
Representatives from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development and several local veterans’ employment assistance organizations tuned in to MS Teams for the briefing. These veterans’ employment reps work exclusively with employers and job seeking Veterans, and act as a critical link between them.
Minnesota ESGR State Chair Tom Simonet, and Jim Finley the state committee employer outreach director provided information on USERRA, pre and post deployment, time lines, employer rights, and the rights of the Veteran.
“This is a great example of how the partnership and shared focus between ESGR and statewide veterans’ employment organizations can be a powerful force multiplier,” said Simonet.
An ESGR handout, "Tips for Employers," and other information from the ESGR website including contact information for Minnesota ESGR leadership and ombudsmen was also made available.
