Implementation of a mandatory Reserve component Civilian Employer Information database begins today, culminating a yearlong effort to establish a Department of Defense-wide system to capture and understand who employs the 1.2 million members of the seven Reserve components.
Soldiers of the Army National Guard, airmen of the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, sailors of the Navy Individual Ready Reserve, and Coast Guard reservists can begin entering their employer data on a new Defense Manpower Data Center Web site, at https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/Guard-ReservePortal . Army Reserve soldiers will enter their employer data at https://www.hrc.army.mil . Navy selected reservists will enter their employer data at https://nsips.nmci.navy.mil . Marine Reservists will enter their employer data at https://www.mol.usmc.mil/ .
Guard and Reserve members are required to register information about their civilian employer and job skills, in order for the department to meet three different requirements defined in law. The Department of Defense is required to: give consideration to civilian employment necessary to maintain national health, safety and interest when considering members for recall; ensure that members with critical civilian skills are not retained in numbers beyond those needed for those skills, and; inform employers of reservists of their rights and responsibilities under the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act.
The goal is to populate and maintain an employer database with 95 percent accuracy of the Selected Reserve and 75 percent accuracy of the Individual Ready Reserve.
