"Federal Law Says Employers Must Rehire Returning Service Personnel: It's Easy to Make Mistakes When Implementing Rules," San Diego Business Journal
In this article, Stacey E. James urges employers to review intricacies of USERRA and military leave laws. "A lot of employers don't deal with returning service members on a regular basis," said James. "So every time a service member returns, they have to relearn the law. And when you don't know the law well, it is very easy to make mistakes." The intricacies of USERRA can be a trap for the unwary employer, she said, so employers need to understand their obligations as well as rights. James also describes examples of those obligations and rights of the employer.
