Veteran Employment Rights
Thousands of soldiers, sailors, and airmen are returning from the armed conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, deadly wars that have lasted longer than the Vietnam War or even the American Revolution. They have completed their educations with the G.I. Bill and are often the most highly qualified applicants or returning employees. Unfortunately, many employers who are either unfamiliar with, or unconcerned about, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), punish our troops by not reinstating them in their previous jobs back upon return from active duty. Other employers may simply discriminate by refusing to hire former soldiers, sailors and airmen.
If you were an active duty soldier, sailor, airman, or if you are or were called to active duty while serving in a Reserve or National Guard unit and you believe that you may have experienced something like this as a result, please contact us as soon as possible for a non-cost consultation.
