Veterans' Re-employment Rights
The Federal Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act (USERRA), enacted in October 1994, provides re-employment protection and other benefits for veterans and employees who perform military service. It clarifies the rights and responsibilities of National Guard and Reserve members, as well as their civilian employers. USERRA was significantly updated in 1996 and 1998 and applies almost universally to all employers, regardless of the size of their business.
