Veteran employment rights

The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) is a federal law that provides reemployment rights to returning veterans and other members of uniformed services.

Under USERRA, an individual who leaves his or her civilian job for military service is entitled to return to the job with accrued seniority if he or she satisfies the eligibility requirements set forth under USERRA.

National Guard and reservists are a highly trained and committed resource for filling employer needs.  To learn more, watch this video.

USERRA applies to all employees regardless of the size of their employer. To learn more visit the USERRA Rights AdvisorAdditionally, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is available to assist employers, veterans and National Guard or reservists in understanding employment rights.
