Employment Assistance (Reserve Component)

Since most of us are not independently wealthy, we will have to find jobs or return to jobs we had prior to mobilization/activation after we are released from active duty. 

Reemployment and job rights are a very important aspect of the transition process for members of the Guard and Reserves of the Armed Forces. If you were activated for more than 180 days, these rights protect you from being terminated by your employer without cause within one year after the date of reemployment. If you were activated for more than 30 days but less than 181 days, you will be protected from termination for 180 after being reemployed. The following section will help you understand your rights and where to turn for employment assistance and other career resources.
