Uniformed Services Employment

and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
Besides worrying about home or car

payments, ongoing civil court disputes and evictions of family or dependents,

active military persons are often concerned about whether they will have a job

to return to once their period of active duty is over. Fortunately, the answer

is usually yes. A federal law known as the Uniformed Services Employment

and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, or USERRA (

38 U.S.C. Section 4301 and


), prohibits

discrimination against members of the United States military or those who serve

in the military reserves. This law requires employers to reinstate an employee

who has taken time off to serve in the armed forces, including reservists called

up by the President, if the employee meets these


  • The employee gave the employer notice, before taking

    leave that the leave was for military service.

  • The employee spent no more than five years on leave

    for military service.

  • The employee was released from military service under

    honorable conditions, and

  • The employee reports back or applies for reinstatement

    within specified time limits (these limits vary depending on the length of the

    employee’s leave).

USERRA requires employers to reinstate workers to the

same position they would have held had they been continuously employed

throughout their leave, provided they are otherwise qualified for that job. This

means that your employer cannot simply return you to your old position. Instead,

the employer must give you any promotions, increased pay or additional job

responsibilities that you would have gotten had you never taken leave — but

only if you are qualified to do the job. If you are not qualified, your employer

must try to get you qualified (by providing training, for example). You are

entitled to the benefits and seniority that you would have earned had you been

continuously employed. For purposes of benefits plans and leave policies, the

time you spent on leave must be counted as time worked. For more information on

USERRA, go to http://www.dol.gov/asp/programs/handbook/userra.htm or http://www.dol.gov. The website of the U.S.

Department of Labor has fact sheets and frequently asked questions about
