Suzette Snyder, labor exchange administrator, CPRW for Western Maryland, recently signed a statement of support for the National Guard and Reserve.
The statement-of-support program has been the cornerstone of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves effort to gain and maintain employer support. The intent of the program is to increase employer support of the Guard and Reserve by developing employers that advocate for employee participation in the military.
The statement confirms that Washington County Workforce Services joins other employers in pledging that:
- We fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act.
- Our managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
- We appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, reservists and veterans.
- We will continually recognize and support our country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.
