The federal government has proposed new legislation that would provide job protection to reservists who work for the federal public sector and in federally regulated jobs.

"The Government of Canada believes that reservists deserve to have job protection because supporting the men and women who serve Canada is the right thing to do to," said Minister of Labour Jean-Pierre Blackburn, who tabled the bill.

"It is important that we do everything we can to ensure that our reservists never have to worry about being penalized for serving our country."
