State of Wyoming

The State of Wyoming government is one of the largest employers in Wyoming. Governor Jim Geringer issued an executive order in October ZOOI focused on defining and standardizing the benefits padtage provided to state employees who serve as members of the Guard and Reserve. State statutes mirror federal re-employment protections for all employees who are members of the Reserve forces. These protections apply when Guard members perform State Active Duty just as federal re-employment rights cover federal duty. The level of the state’s support for employees is exemplified in the Executive Order issued by the Governor in November of 200l. The Order goes beyond the statutory re-employment rights and ensures employees are not penalized with decreased income and benefits during deployments.
