USERRA Overview

The purpose of this paper is to provide a historical context and overview of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). The Act’s ethical context is framed by the following question: What is proper amount of protection that should be given to citizen-soldiers and Marines when they return to civilian employment after completion of a period of active military service? Given the legislative intent and judicial applications of the law, it would appear that the ethical framework has favored the military employee. The “motivating factor” rule applied by the courts is the expression of policy that attempts to answer the ethical question in a manner that supports the nation’s continued reliance on the Guard and Reserve.
