Court cases reaffirm law prohibiting discrimination against workers serving in the military
from Government Executive
The law protecting the jobs and benefits of employees on active or reserve military duty received a boost earlier this week from two separate court decisions. The rulings, handed down in separate cases by the Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, involve the 1994 Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act, which prohibits employers — including the federal government — from firing or otherwise discriminating against a worker who is serving or has served in the military. The two courts decided in favor of the plaintiffs, both of whom sued their employers for violating USERRA.
