star this property answer text <p>The term “recruitment target” has been interpreted as the 30,000 trained Army Reservists required under Army 2020.<br><br>During the Three Month Exercise, the Ministry Of Defence examined a range of Force Structure options which were assessed as being able to deliver the policy demand specified by the new Defence Planning Assumptions laid out in Strategic Defence and Security Review 2010. As a result of this, a Senior Military Judgement Panel chaired by the Vice Chief of the Defence Staff and including the Assistant Chiefs of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force concluded that the size of the Regular Army should be 82,500, and the Independent Commission to Review the United Kingdom's Reserve Forces recommended an Army Reserve of 30,000 trained personnel. This was judged to be the optimal size and shape of the Army within available resources.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>An 'anti-disadvantage' survey was launched on 3 July 2013 to gather any evidence of disadvantage against which the Government might be able to legislate, in order to protect Reservists. A very small number of cases were reported. Where requested, engagement with these employers took place to rectify the particular issues identified. However, the survey did not generate sufficient data to determine the scale of disadvantage so a new question will be included in the next annual Reserves Continuous Attitude Survey and, if necessary, additional measures to protect members of the Reserves from discrimination will be considered.</p><p>Specific employment protection for Reservists has been included in the Defence Reform Act 2014, which commenced on 1 October this year. Reservists now have immediate access to an Employment Tribunal for unfair dismissal without the usual two year qualifying period of service if they believe the primary reason for their dismissal is because they are a Reservist. This is an important step in minimising any disadvantage arising from Reserve service.</p><p>The Ministry of Defence has also actively engaged with employers to impart the benefits of employing Reservists and to mitigate any impact on the employer. These include advance notice of training programmes for the coming year and the provision of a local point of contact. It is hoped that better and earlier engagement will avert any issues that could lead to Reservists being disadvantaged.</p>
