Ministry of Defence (MOD) and HM Treasury officials have been working together since 2015 to improve processes for Reservist personnel, particularly for those mobilising from and demobilising back into civilian employment. As a result, new internal procedures have been introduced and guidance and instructions issued.

The MOD will continue to review the impact of this revised guidance on Reservist personnel to ensure the new guidelines are operating effectively and see if any further improvements are required. Current guidance on the rights and responsibilities of Reservists and employers, including payroll reporting, can be found at the following address: https://www.gov.uk/employee-reservist
