100% Perspective

100%


EMPLOYER: Perspective

Compensation (money)

RESERVIST:

Job reservation

Qualification

Possible further advantages (tax breaks, etc.)

No career disadvantages

Predictability

Support of employers' personnel-related measures (short-time work, sabbaticals, etc.)

Meaningful assignments in the armed forces and career prospects

Civilian occupation

ARMED FORCES:

Qualified reservists

Flexible terms of availability

Mediator between the armed forces and society

Operational readiness


Key legislation:

Job Reservation Act

Conscripts and Dependants Maintenance Act

Military Pay Act


Military Pay Act was strongly influenced by the East-West conflict:

Conscripts and Dependants Maintenance Act

Job Reservation Act

Regulates the pay and allowances of the conscripts and reservists

Regulates benefits for securing the livelihood of the conscript / reservist and his family

Regulates a prohibition of dismissals and discrimination and requirements for reimbursing benefits paid for retirement pensions and surviving dependants' pensions


  • Military Pay was strongly influenced by the East-West conflict:

  • Unremunerated benefits (accommodation, messing, free medical care)

  • Support with costs for housing

  • Support for the self-employed (income compensation, payment of certain operating costs)

Prohibition of dismissals

Prohibition of discrimination

Continued payment of retirement, pension and survivors' benefits


Globalisation was strongly influenced by the East-West conflict:

Participation in int. operations

Free trade routes

"Withdrawal" from large areas

Migration flows

Disaster control

Suspension of compulsory military service

Comprehensive Approach

Asymmetrical threat

Demographic change &

competition with industry


Statutory regulations for the existing compulsory military service are more focused on protecting the conscript (employee)

The principle of voluntariness grants employers greater influence on exemption for reserve duties

Good news:

85% of employers who received an application for exemption for reserve duty accepted it (status: 2009).

But: Those are only the ones we know about AND there was still compulsory military service...


- Adaptation of legislation (modernisation) service are more focused on protecting the conscript (employee)

- Communication with employees

- Consideration of employers' interests

- Making or keeping reserve duty attractive
