ESGR, a Department of Defense office, is comprised of dedicated and trained volunteers and staff. We 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.
ESGR informs and educates service members and their civilian employers regarding their rights and responsibilities governed by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). ESGR does not have statutory authority to enforce, but serves as a neutral, free resource to employers and service members. ESGR’s trained ombudsmen provide mediation of issues relating to compliance with USERRA.
Virgin Islands ESGR representatives are available to assist you in ESGR-related matters that do not require intervention between an employer and Service member. Local volunteers are here to inform and educate you and your employer relevant to USERRA. So, don't be afraid to ask a question.
