Civil servants to receive 10 days' paid leave for Reserves training

The Defence Secretary has announced that, from December, civil servants in central government departments who volunteer as reservists will receive a minimum of 10 days' special paid leave per year to conduct their military training.

Following direction from the Prime Minister that the Government should lead the way as an employer of Reserves, the Head of the Civil Service has agreed with Departments to introduce a policy providing a standard minimum of 10 days' special paid leave for Reserves training across central government departments.

This will allow reservists to undertake their mandated annual period of continuous training without needing to sacrifice their annual leave entitlement.
