Manager's Guide to Military Leave

October 7

Gain a thorough and practical understanding of USERRA and common compliance issues that can trip you up.

The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) provides broad leave rights for employees who serve in the military. Most managers have heard of USERRA and have some understanding of what it is, but few grasp its scope and how utterly unique it is when its protections are compared to other more well known leave laws. As a result, it is one of the most common laws that is unintentionally violated, often with disastrous results for businesses that must bear the cost of litigation. The purpose of this topic is to provide you with a thorough and practical understanding of USERRA, its protections and requirements, and common compliance issues that often trip up employers. The information will also consider current hot topics regarding USERRA, including the impact of COVID-19 and a discussion of recent court cases.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to review the history and purpose of USERRA.
  • You will be able to discuss employee leave rights.
  • You will be able to explain employee reinstatement rights.
  • You will be able to recognize common compliance issues.
