    About the USERRA

    The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, 38 U.S.C. §§4301-4335 (USERRA), was signed into law on October 13, 1994.

    USERRA prohibits discrimination in employment based on an individual’s prior service in the uniformed services; current service in the uniformed services; or intent to join the uniformed services.

    An employer is also prohibited from discriminating against a person because of such person’s attempt toenforce his or her rights under the Act. In addition, an employer may not retaliate against an individual for filing a USERRA claim, testifying, or otherwise providing assistance in any proceeding under the Act.

    USERRA also provides reemployment rights with the pre-service employer following qualifying service in the uniformed services. In general, the protected person is entitled to be reemployed with the status, seniority, and rate of pay as if he or she had been continuously employed during the period of service.

    USERRA applies to private employers, the Federal Government, and State and local governments. It also applies to United States employers operating overseas and foreign employers operating within the United States.
