In Brief: Employing Reservists

The Ministry of Justice has published a toolkit for employers containing guidance and support on all aspects of employing reservists. This includes:

  • details of rights and responsibilities, and financial assistance for employers and reservists;
  • guidance for line managers on how to manage reservists;
  • managing requests regarding time off for training; and
  • guidance and actions for when a reservist is mobilised, demobilised and returns to work.

As well as an employer handbook, the package of resources includes a template for developing a human resources policy for reservist employees and a sample call-out letter.
