As a member of the Armed Forces, Reserves, National Guard or other uniformed services, you have some job protections when you are called into military service.
 

This law is called the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). It seeks to protect your civilian job and benefits when your unit is activated. It also says that you should not suffer job discrimination because you were called away to service.
 

Do I qualify for this benefit?

  • This benefit applies to almost everyone in the uniformed services.
     
  • It applies to all employers in the public and private sectors, including federal employers.
     
  • It applies to military service, whether the service is voluntary or involuntary.
     
  • It does not apply to state activation of a National Guard. But many states have similar laws that will apply.
