MILITARY VETERANS

FCI values the “can do” attitude of veterans and knows that as members of our military transitioning into a civilian career and that they are seeking fresh, new opportunities that allow them to continue to make valuable, mission critical, contributions. FCI has been that next career step for many people. In fact, we are proud to say that 65% of our staff are veterans. With the hope that we can continue to offer rewarding “next step” career opportunities, we have provided this section to address some of the questions unique to the transitioning soldier, sailor, airman, or marine.

Members of the Guard or Reserve

FCI provides a paid military leave benefit to full time employees who, as “citizen soldiers”, maintain both a part time position in the Guard or Reserves as well as a civilian career. The purpose of this benefit is to ensure there is no loss of pay due to military service for employees who are also members of the Reserves or National Guard. When serving on temporary active duty, these employees are entitled to a maximum of ten (10) work days of paid military leave per calendar year, less the gross pay received from the Government.

Since 2009 FCI has been a proud signatory of a Statement of Support through the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), for the members of our Guard and Reserve forces. Established in 1972, ESGR is a Department of Defense agency whose mission is to promote a culture in which all American employers support and value the military service of their employees. ESGR recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of the law, and resolves conflicts through mediation. It is the lead Department of Defense organization for this mission. For more information on ESGR, please click their logo below.
