Are not disadvantaged in their civilian careers because of their 
service; (2) are promptly reemployed in their civilian jobs upon their 
return from duty; and (3) are not discriminated against in employment 
based on past, present, or future military service. The Act covers 
members of the Uniformed Services, any other category of persons 
designated by the President in time of war or national emergency, and 
their government and civilian employers. It is the responsibility of 
the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) to promote 
cooperation and understanding between Reserve component members and 
their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts 
arising from an employee's military commitment. The Department of 
Defense Focus Groups of Employers are being conducted using a 
stratified cluster sampling design to provide in-depth information to 
determine best practices of ESGR in supporting employers of Reserve and 
Guard members and to evaluate the effectiveness of ESGR and DoD 
programs. The information collected is used in conjunction with survey 
information collected on a statistically random and nationally-
representative basis. The information collected is used for overall 
program evaluation, management and improvement.
