The National Guard, a United States reserve military force, is comprised of National Guard military members in each state. These members can be deployed to help with any emergency, like the aftermath of a hurricane or in the situation of a pandemic where their assistance is needed for a variety of things such as food banks or stay-at-home orders.

Typically, members of the National Guard are given only a few days’ notice before they are deployed and do not know how long they’ll be gone. Employers need to be aware and educate themselves with the laws in case their employees get called to duty.
