You should be able to serve our country in the armed forces without worrying about holding on to your job back home.
As a member of the military, you have special rights under employment law—something many service members don’t realize—that protect your position when you’re on active duty.
You don’t have to quit and try to find a new job when you get back.
Your employer is required under the federal Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) to return you to an equivalent job.
If your employer violates this law, you could make a legal claim to get your job back, collect lost wages or get a cash settlement.
The attorneys at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal can help you protect your career and your future.
We’re proud to help people from Ohio who give to their country through service in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and the National Guard.

Under the USERRA law, employers cannot do any of these things:
The law requires you to give notice, when possible, that you will be taking leave from your job for military service.
But the obligation is on your employer to respect your service and preserve your job.
Companies don’t always want to honor the law. It’s inconvenient for them to leave positions unfilled or return you to a position after a reorganization while you were gone.
But you made a sacrifice to serve. Their duty is to be responsible citizens by supporting our military service members.
