Manager's Guide to Military Leave

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

Gain a thorough and practical understanding of USERRA and common compliance issues that can trip you up.The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) provides broad leave rights for employees who serve in the military. Most managers have heard of USERRA and have some understanding of what it is, but few grasp its scope and how utterly unique it is when its protections are compared to other more well known leave laws. As a result, it is one of the most common laws that is unintentionally violated, often with disastrous results for businesses that must bear the cost of litigation. The purpose of this topic is to provide you with a thorough and practical understanding of USERRA, its protections and requirements, and common compliance issues that often trip up employers. The information will also consider current hot topics regarding USERRA, including the impact of COVID-19 and a discussion of recent court cases.
