The Rise in Troop Return Prompts USERRA Obligations for Employers
As announced by President Obama, nearly 40,000 U.S. troops are scheduled to return to the United States by December 31, 2011. In addition, commentators expect that there will be a potential troop draw down in Afghanistan. At home in the United States, employers must be mindful of their responsibilities to the returning troops under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). USERRA, among other things, outlines the rights and obligations of employers and employees regarding an employee's leave from employment to undertake military service. USERRA applies to all U.S. employers, public or private.
This one-hour complimentary program will highlight the key considerations for U.S. employers regarding their USERRA obligations. Some of the key topics to be addressed include:
- USERRA's coverage thresholds
- USERRA's reinstatement provisions
- A practical perspective on addressing reinstatement requests and meeting reinstatement obligations
- Insights regarding which states have additional military leave requirements
- An update on recent amendment, and proposed amendments, to USERRA
George R. Wood, a shareholder in Littler's Minneapolis office and co-chair of the American Bar Association's USERRA Subcommittee, will present the program.
