New USERRA Posting Requirement Now in Effect
Effective March 10, employers must provide employees with notice of their rights, benefits, and obligations under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), which covers the rights of employees and applicants who have served in the military.
This new requirement is mandated by the Veterans Benefits Improvement Act of 2004, which President Bush signed into law on December 10, 2004. The requirement may be met by posting a notice drafted by the Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service in a place where employers customarily place notices for employees.
