Report: Voluntary charter for employers of reservists

Employers will be encouraged to sign a voluntary charter guaranteeing that they will not stand in the way of employees who wish to be reservists, the Independent reports.

The newspaper also reports that they will receive an "enhanced compensation package" for staff who are away on duty, which could be as much as one in every five years.

The Treasury reportedly blocked an earlier plan to give employers tax breaks, as is the case in some other countries.
