Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) for Employees

Course overview

For those in the armed services who also have civilian jobs, being called to active duty can be a stressful time. Making preparations to serve one's country often brings worries about one's family, career, or the future in general. If you find yourself wondering what would happen to your job if you were called away for military service, take heart. There is a law in place that protects your employment rights. It's USERRA, the Uniformed Services Employment & Reemployment Rights Act. The Veterans' Employment and Training Service, through the Department of Labor, administers and enforces this Act. In this program, we'll discuss the benefits of this act, who is covered, and how coverage is impacted by length of service and injury or illness.
