Wisconsin Employment Rights Lawyers Fighting for Veterans’ Re-employment Rights
Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) ensures that employees who are called to active military duty can return to their jobs without penalty after completing their military obligations. Because of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, reserve troops are increasingly called to active duty in the military, but many employers are unaware of just how extensive returning veterans’ rights are under the USERRA.
At The Previant Law Firm, S.C., we are aware of your rights and are prepared to protect them. Our employment law attorneys will stand up for your freedom to return to work. If your employer failed to comply with the USERRA guidelines, we can help.
Protecting the rights of public and private employees
The USERRA applies to all public and private employers. When the duration of military leave is less than five years, the USERRA generally guarantees employees the right to their former job. In addition, returning veterans must be reemployed at the wage and with the benefits the employee would have accumulated had he or she not been called to military service.
Our firm has been representing veterans going back to work for more than 100 years. Whether you lost your job after returning from military service or did not receive the correct benefits, we can help. We will help ensure your rights are honored.
