Reserve and Cadet Forces model policy example

17 / 03 / 2020

We have developed a model policy example for employing reservists and cadet force adult volunteers (CFAV) which outlines the guidance and support available to employers of the Armed Forces within England*.

This policy example is adaptable to your organisation and suggests offers you may wish to make to support members of the reserve and cadet forces within your workforce such as additional leave and allowance for military training commitments.

Alongside our own model policy for employers, we have collated exemplar policies from across the NHS to show examples of how NHS organisations have incorporated support, including as a stand-alone policy or added into their special leave policy:
