Proposed Regulations Under USERRA
by Michael Fox
The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 is more than just a mouthful, in today's world where citizen soldiers are much more in use it will be more prominent on an employer's list of things to worry about. Yesterday, for the first time in the Act's history, the Department of Labor proposed regulations that will control how USERRA is implemented. The public has 60 days to comment on the proposed regulations. The Department of Labor once again uses the question and answer format first used with the FMLA regulations.
