VETERANS’ RIGHTS

Tennessee employment law attorneys are sometimes called on by clients who have served in the military to evaluate their rights under the Uniformed Services Employment And Reemployment Rights Act.

The Uniformed Services Employment And Reemployment Rights Act was passed in 1994 and replaces the Veterans Reemployment Rights Statute. It often is referred as simply the USERRA.

The USERRA is administered by the Secretary of Labor and has many purposes.

For example, USERRA makes it unlawful to discriminate against an employee because of his or her service in the uniformed services.

One of the primary purposes of the statute relates to the reemployment of military personnel whose employment has been interrupted by military service.

For instance, not only must a returning veteran be reinstated to the same or similar job prior to his or her military service if all eligibility requirements are met, such an employee may not be discharged from employment without cause within one year after reemployment if the individual’s period of service was more than 180 days.

Memphis lawyers and other attorneys who focus their practice on employment litigation understand that many employers do not always understand the USERRA and violate it in some way.
