I have done a search but the results seem a little out of date so: Has anyone had any (recent) experience with mobilisation? Specifically letting employers know that you were off somewhere hot and sandy? More specifically, that you were off somewhere hot and sandy BUT had volunteered? Two completely hypothetical situations: 1) If I were to ârequestâ to do my part; is there a way to get around the employee safeguarding currently in place? My job will be safe should I be âcalled upâ under compulsory mobilisation but I donât know where things lie with sticking my name down willingly. And I donât want to start digging around the corporate policy garden as Iâm more likely to strike sh!t than oil!! 2) If my Regiment were told that they were being mobilised and that they had to find the main effort of 200 or so troops, what then? I know this applied to the Really Large Corps last year when they were called up for Afghan. Basically, in a totally hypothetical situation, I want to do my bit but I want it to look like Iâm being âasked in a rather persuasive mannerâ to go, so I get to keep my job when I return. Anyone got any bright (but sensible) ideas on where to purchase said smoke and mirrors?
