South Carolina ESGR seeks to develop and promote a culture in which all American employers support and value the military service of their employees.
The nation’s Reserve components (total Guard and Reserve forces from all branches of the military) comprise approximately 48 percent of our total available military manpower.
The current National Defense Strategy indicates that the Guard and Reserve will be full partners in the fully integrated Total Force.
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.
South Carolina Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve volunteers present ARINC a “Patriot Award” as a result of a nomination from their employee who serves in the Reserves.
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division receives Department of Defense “Above and Beyond” award for extraordinary support of employees who also serve in the Guard and Reserve.
Service members: Please nominate your supportive employer/supervisor to receive a “Patriot Award” by visiting the ESGR Website.
If you encounter a conflict with your civilian employer, let us know. We are here to answer questions or provide mediation between you and your employer, based on the USERRA law.
Supportive Employers: Show your support to our Guard and Reserve members in South Carolina by participating in the “Statement of Support” Program! Complete a Statement of Support form.
If you have an inquiry about the law or a potential issue with your employee who is also in the uniformed services, let us know.
We are here to answer questions or to provide assistance between you and your employee, based on the federal USERRA law.
