The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) is a Federal law that establishes employment rights and responsibilities for uniformed service members and their civilian employers. As a military reservist, you know it can be difficult to keep your civilian bosses happy while you serve your country. If you’re fired, demoted, denied reemployment, miss a promotion, miss a bonus, or are even marked down in an evaluation because of your military service – Martzen Law Firm may be able to help. USERRA is a powerful statute – many courts have even ruled that newer USERRA claims have no statute of limitations – meaning you can pursue a legal claim many years after your employer broke the law.
It is important that we as a society take care of the ones who risk their lives to make sure we have a place that we can call home. When service members are treated unfairly by those who will never understand what it means to serve, we find ways to bring justice to light.
