Do you know what the “escalator” principle is for a servicemember returning from a lengthy deployment? What do employers need to know about reemploying a servicemember with a disability? To learn more about these and other issues, you’ll want to attend the CLE I’m presenting on November 7, 2013.
As a volunteer ombudsman for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) and the Chair of the Military & Veterans Affairs Section of the Minnesota State Bar, I’ll be providing a detailed overview of the rights and obligations of both employers and their servicemember employees under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and recent developments in how the Act and its regulations are interpreted and applied.
As an office of the Department of Defense, ESGR promotes cooperation and understanding between reserve component servicemembers and their civilian employers, helping resolve conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment. As an ESGR ombudsman, I frequently mediate disputes between servicemembers and their civilian employers, and lecture employers and servicemembers regarding their rights and obligations under USERRA.
