There needs to be a list of Shame as well. Not only has my employer refused to sign the Statment of Support, they have been terrible about my first and now my second Mobilizations.

Joe the reason they probably are not signing is they dont understand it. I am a volunteer with ESGR and it has been about 6 months to finally get one set up. I recommend nominating your supervisor for a patriot award and make it a big deal and have ESGR present the award at a staff meeting. That is an easy win.

It's possible they do not understand. In the last 14 years of war only two people have been mobilized that work at my employer, I'm on my second Mobilization.

If my employer even fulfilled their basic obligation I would nominate them for an award. But their attitude and behavior warrent the opposite course of action. I will need the help of the ESRG to regain my position when I return.

My Previous Director made an effort to look like he supported his Veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, but he held us back from promotions and always overlooked us. He was afraid to sink money into us and not see an immediate return on his investment.

I see both sides of the table the reservist is serving his country and the employer have to run a business so it takes some balancing.

The key is to develop and cultivate employee relations vs pointing them to the USERRA law.
