The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) gives employees who are returning veterans or other services members the right to return to prior employment. When you leave your civilian job for military service, you are entitled to return to the same job with accrued seniority if you’ve satisfied USERRA’s requirements. Furthermore, employers must offer reasonable accommodation for injuries suffered or aggravated during service. Failure to do is a violation of federal law.
