Retailer Lowe's nailed in USERRA case and hammered by Feds for firing Iraq veteran

from Forbes

Lowe's, the national hardware store chain, has agreed to pay $45,000 to an Army National Guard soldier to settle allegations he was improperly fired from a distribution center after returning from the Iraq War. In 2008, Matthew King of Oregon provided Lowe's with a copy of his military orders, deploying him to Iraq. King returned to Oregon after being honorably discharged in 2010. Upon returning, King sought, but did not receive, unemployment benefits. He returned to work at Lowe's. However, the company fired him after it learned he had applied for unemployment. The Veterans' Employment and Training Service determined he was wrongfully terminated, which resulted in the Department of Labor referring the matter to the Justice Department. more
