On September 29, 2022 President Biden signed the Civilian Reservist Emergency Workforce (CREW) Act into law. This act amends the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act as well as the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) to protect full-time employment of FEMA Reservists when they are deployed to disasters and emergencies on behalf of FEMA. It also protects them against penalization, discrimination, or loss of employee benefits as a result of their deployment to disasters, emergencies and critical trainings.
