When Your Employee is Called to Military Duty
Hiring an employee who has an obligation to the United States military comes with certain responsibilities to that employee and employer.
Typically, a reservist employee will have their drill schedule given to them a year in advance. The drill schedule is one weekend a month and two weeks a year. Dates on this schedule rarely change, but it’s good idea to keep in mind for planning purposes and to avoid conflicts. If a natural disaster hits the state, the reservist will have about two or three days of notice. If you are the employer, flexibility in this short notice situation is extremely important. If your employee is scheduled to conduct additional training, beyond two weeks, they will typically be aware of this about three to six months of notice. When a reservist is called to active duty, a deployment that lasts longer than 30 days, they will generally have about six months to a year of notice.
