ABSTRACT
The article offers information on armed forces reservists in Great Britain who are recruited in the civilian community. It cites that an employee who has volunteered as a reservist can be mobilized that could affect the company for which the reservist works. The Ministry of Defense has created the campaign called Supporting Britain's Reservists and Employers to explain the benefits, rights, and obligations associated with employing a member of the reserve force.
