    Program Description

    USERRA - Uniformed Services Employment & Reemployment Rights Act of 1994.  Dawn will discuss USERRA and how it protects the job rights of individuals who voluntarily or involuntarily leave employment positions to perform service in the uniformed Services, to include certain types of service in the National Disaster Medical System and the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service.  She will also discuss how USERRA affects employment, reemployment, and retention in employment, when employees serve in the uniformed Services and how USERRA also prohibits employers from discriminating against past and present members of the uniformed Services and applicants to the uniformed Services.
