To a small company it may be a significant amount but to many it is little more than a slapped wrist, if that. I doubt it will discourage many of the larger organisations, although I guess fines could be increased in scale of salary lost, size of the business, and whether it is raining outside. Interesting point there, apparently we don't legally have to inform our employers of our reserve forces commitments if we joined before April 1 2004.
