News Bulletin: Job Protection Efforts For Returning Reservists, Guardsmen

A plan to streamline and strengthen enforcement of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA), has been signed by U.S. Labor Secretary Elaine Chao and Attorney General John Ashcroft. The document delegates the Department of Labor’s USERRA responsibilities to the Veterans’ Employment Solicitor, and the Attorney General’s USERRA responsibilities to the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s office. A complete story about the military leave regulations is in this month’s California Employer Advisor.
