Father, child, and mother who is a military member

The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) provides certain protections for individuals who leave their civilian employment to perform military service. Under USERRA, employers are required to provide certain rights and benefits to these individuals, including the right to be reemployed in their civilian jobs after completing their military service, and the right to maintain certain benefits, such as health insurance, during their period of military service. Employers need to understand how to manage employee leaves under USERRA to remain compliant with Federal law, and to ensure that they are treating their employees fairly and equitably.

We’ve created a simple summary, USERRA Best Practices, as a quick reference guide for HR teams, supervisors, and managers. You can download the Best Practices guide here.
