Ferrell-Duncan Clinic honored by Department of Defense with Above and Beyond Award
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense, recognized Ferrell-Duncan Clinic with an Above and Beyond Award in recognition of extraordinary support of employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserves. The award was presented to CoxHealth vice president Bob Ferguson on October 1.
The Above and Beyond Award is presented by ESGR State Committees. It recognizes 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.
