USERRA

Regulations issued for law protecting military service members         

On January 18, 2006, U.S. Department of Labor regulations interpreting and providing detail on the USERRA became effective.  The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) protects service members from termination of employment, discrimination, retaliation, and loss of benefits based upon their status and service obligations.  Unlike most federal employment law statutes, the USERRA applies to all employers, not just those of a particular size, such as Title VII (15) or the FMLA (50).
