What are an Employer's Duties under USERRA?
The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) requires employers to reemploy employees who voluntarily or involuntarily have to leave employment for duty in the uniformed services, including training in the National Guard and service in the National Disaster Medical System. USERRA also protects employees with current, past or future military service from discrimination in employment decisions and benefits as well as protects these employees from retaliation by their employers for exercising their rights under the Act.
