READY RESERVE (SMCR UNITS, IMAS, IRR) MEMBERS CEASE, AND NO
DEFERMENT, DELAY, OR EXEMPTION FROM MOBILIZATION SHALL BE
GRANTED ON THE BASIS OF CIVILIAN EMPLOYMENT OF A RESERVE
MEMBER. HOWEVER, DUE TO THE UNIQUE SITUATION CREATED BY
THE EVENTS OF 9-11, THE DOD POLICY IN REF (B) CREATED A
MEANS TO CONSIDER SPECIAL CASE EXEMPTIONS OF CERTAIN READY
RESERVE MEMBERS BECAUSE OF THEIR CIVILIAN EMPLOYMENT.
3. POLICY.
A. FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL GOVT AGENCIES AND CIVILIAN
ORGANIZATIONS EMPLOYING RESERVE MEMBERS MAY IDENTIFY
THOSE POSITIONS FILLED BY MEMBERS OF THE READY RESERVE
THAT ARE DEEMED CRITICAL UNDER THE CURRENT NATIONAL

IN A REASONABLE TIME.
(2) REQUIRED TECHNICAL OR MANAGERIAL SKILLS POSSESSED
UNIQUELY BY THE ACTIVATED MEMBER.

MOBILIZATION/HOMELAND DEFENSE.
(4) EXTENT THAT THE POSITION IS RELATED TO EMERGENCY
OR NATIONAL DEFENSE INDUSTRIAL RESOURCE
PREPAREDNESS RESPONSIBILITIES.
(5) OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO NATIONAL DEFENSE, HEALTH,
OR SAFETY THAT WILL MAKE THE ACTIVATED MARINE
UNAVAILABLE FOR
MOBILIZATION.
4. SUBMISSION PROCEDURES. PER REF B, REQUESTS FOR DELAY,
DEFERMENT, OR EXEMPTION (BASED ON CRITICAL NATURE OF THE
CIVILIAN POSITION) WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTED IF A MEMBER HAS
BEEN IDENTIFIED FOR, OR ADVISED OF AN IMPENDING INVOLUNTARY
CALL TO ACTIVE DUTY. THE REQUEST MUST BE GENERATED BY THE
EMPLOYER AND NOT THE MARINE.

D. ADJUDICATION OF REQUESTS. USD P&R WILL FORWARD REQUESTS
INVOLVING MARINE RESERVISTS TO CMC (RA) FOR A
RECOMMENDATION. CMC (RA) WILL COORDINATE WITH CMC (MP)
OR MARFORRES TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION FOR APPROVAL OR
DENIAL OF THE REQUEST. THE CMC RECOMMENDATION WILL BE
BASED ON AN EVALUATION OF THE CRITERIA OUTLINED IN PARA.
3B, THE CRITICAL NATURE OF THE RESERVIST'S ANTICIPATED
MOBILIZATION DUTIES, AND THE ABILITY OF THE MARINE
CORPS TO ACCOMMODATE THE REQUEST.
(1) ONCE USD P&R MAKES A FINAL DETERMINATION, THE
EMPLOYER AND CMC (RA) WILL BE NOTIFIED. CMC (RA)
WILL NOTIFY MARFORRES OR CMC (MP) AS APPROPRIATE.
IF A REQUEST IS DENIED, THE MARINE WILL BE MOBILIZED;
IF GRANTED, THE MARINE WILL BE TRANSFERRED TO THE
STANDBY RESERVE, RETIRED RESERVE, OR DISCHARGED
AS APPROPRIATE.
(2) MARINES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR INFORMING THEIR CHAIN
OF COMMAND THAT THEIR EMPLOYER IS REQUESTING AN
EXEMPTION FROM MOBILIZATION. THE MARINE SHOULD
ALSO REQUEST A DELAY PER REF C, WHILE AWAITING
FINAL ADJUDICATION OF THE EMPLOYER'S REQUEST FOR
MOBILIZATION EXEMPTION.
5. SUMMARY. THE PROCEDURES OUTLINED ABOVE ARE INTENDED TO
ACCOMMODATE UNIQUE SITUATIONS WHERE A RESERVE MEMBER MAY BE
SERVING IN A NATIONAL DEFENSE, MOBILIZATION SUPPORT OR HOMELAND
DEFENSE/SECURITY POSITION IN A GOVERNMENT OR CIVILIAN CAPACITY.
CMC WILL RECOMMEND DISAPPROVAL OF REQUESTS THAT DO NOT MEET THIS
CRITERIA.//
