United States Attorney’s Office Recognizes Women’s History Month by Honoring the Districts’ First Female U.S Attorney and AUSA
United States Attorney ALICIA A.G. LIMTIACO, U.S. Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, was presented with the “Above and Beyond” Award on May 23, 2015, by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). The awards event was held at the Sheraton Laguna Resort & Spa in Tumon, Guam. U.S. Attorney Limtiaco and the U.S. Attorney’s Office were nominated by an employee of the U.S. Attorney’s Office presently serving in the Guam Air National Guard.
According to the ESGR website, the Above and Beyond Award is presented by ESGR State Committees to recognize employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages, extended health benefits, and other similar benefits. The award is given in limited numbers by state committees to employers who have had at least one of their supervisors/managers recognized with a Patriot Award, and who have signed or agreed to sign a Statement of Support. Statements of Support pledge, among other things, to recognize, honor and enforce USERRA and to encourage opportunities to employ Guardsmen, Reservists, and Veterans.
U.S. Attorney Limtiaco expressed her appreciation to all Veterans and to all service members for their courage and fortitude and their commitment to protecting our freedoms as Americans, and to the ESGR for their continued efforts to raise awareness among employers about the significant role and responsibilities employers have in supporting and protecting the rights of employees in military service.
