If you are involved in the Military and have been fired…READ HERE!!

Serving the military is one of the most honorable vocations a man or women can partake in. As a result, the law protects these men and women and mandates particular treatment employers must abide by to ensure reasonable accommodations and safeguards. However, employers continue to fire employees unlawfully as a result of military service.

If you were fired or believe that your employer acted negatively towards you as a result of your service, your employer may have acted illegally. It is vital to get informed and know your rights as an Employee to ensure your legal rights are protected. Here’s a section of my book “The Employee Rights Handbook” that deals with just that.

Fired for Serving in the Military

Congress passed the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) in 1994 to protect the rights of veterans and military personnel. The law, together with revisions in 1996 and 1998 and the Veterans Benefits Improvement Act of 2004, expanded protections previously offered by the Veteran’s Reemployment Rights Act and the Military Selective Service Act. The USERRA provides reemployment protection against job denials or demotions for returning and/or injured soldiers, prohibits on-the-job discrimination and retaliation against any employee or applicant because of the individual’s past, present, or future application for uniformed services or performance of such service, and provides health insurance protection for service members and their families.

The Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice is the agency responsible for enforcing the law and suing employers who fail to promptly reemploy returning service men and women. Complaints alleging violations of the USERRA can be filed with the Veterans-Employment Service of the United States Department of Labor. Veterans have different methods of enforcing USERRA rights depending on whether the employer is a federal agency, state agency, or private company.

The law covers all people who perform service on a voluntary or involuntary basis. This includes people serving in the Armed Services (including the Coast Guard), the National Guard (both active and inactive-duty training), commissioned corps of the Public Health Service, and the reserve components of each of these services.

The USERRA applies virtually to all U.S. employers regardless of size and covers all jobs. The only civilian jobs not protected are seasonal or temporary jobs with no reasonable expectation that employment would continue. To be covered, you must hold a civilian job; give reasonable notice (preferably by certified mail or in person to prove delivery) of leaving the job for participation in the uniformed services; leave the employer for no more than five years; obtain an honorable discharge (as opposed to a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge); and report back to the civilian job or submitted an application for reemployment in a timely manner.

The law requires immediate reinstatement if you were gone 30 days or less and within a few days if you were away more than 30 days unless business circumstances have changed so much that it is an impossible or unreasonable burden on the employer. You must be offered a job with the same pay, rank, and seniority upon your return. The employer is prohibited from forcing you to use vacation time for military training. Employers are obligated to assist employees who return from military service and cannot deny promotions, seniority, or other benefits because of military obligations. For example, if you were promoted or promised a raise right before a call-up, you must receive a job in line with the promised promotion and raise upon return, together with reinstatement of all benefits and those benefits (e.g., additional pay) that would have been earned if you continued to work.

If requested, health insurance and continuation coverage for a period up to 24 months must be offered to employees on military leave and their families at a cost of no more than 102% of the full premium under the plan. Veterans and their families may choose to go back on the company health plan immediately when they are re-hired with no waiting period and no exclusion for pre-existing conditions.

The law guarantees all defined benefit or defined contribution pension plan benefits that accrued during military service. Employers must prove reasonable accommodation for any disabilities incurred in military service unless the employer can demonstrate undue hardship. Most importantly, the law guarantees job security of at least one year if you worked at the company more than 180 days before taking military service or six months if you worked at the company between 31 and 180 days before serving in the military. This means you cannot be fired for any reason other than misconduct or cause in retaliation for seeking re-employment.

STRATEGY: The thrust of the USERRA is to prohibit employment discrimination due to past, present or future military membership in all aspects of employment including hiring, retention, promotion, reemployment, discharge and benefits. If you are forced to wait a long period of time (e.g., nine months) before getting your old job back, are fired shortly after returning to work through no fault of your own, are not allowed to use any previously accrued paid vacation or annual leave, are offered an alternative position with substantially less pay or a longer commute, or are denied a promised promotion, contact an official or attorney at the U.S. Department of Labor or private lawyer to enforce your rights. Recoverable damages include getting the job back and receiving lost back pay and benefits such as pension adjustments, vacation pay, forfeited promotional opportunities and a corrected personnel file, plus attorneys’ fees, liquidated damages and the costs of the lawsuit, including reasonable expert witness fees. In one recent case for example, an employer reportedly settled a case with an Army National Guard member who was denied a promotion upon returning for $20,000. Thus, get advice where applicable.

  1. I was discharged from my place of employment this afternoon. Back in July, I informed my supervisor of my need to be away from work for 2 weeks while I performed my Annual Training in August/September. By the end of the week in which I informed my employer of my need for the time off, I was removed from the job in which I had spent almost a year doing, to be moved to a different area of the warehouse. The individual who replaced me was on light and limited duty, so it took 2 other individuals and that member of our crew to do the job I was doing. Upon my return in September, my supervisor continually harassed me, tried to discipline me, and was constantly questioning my productivity, though I was recording one of the top production days every single day I was there. The harassment and discipline was handed down for things that fellow co-workers were also doing or not doing, but the supervisor continually singled me out. Last week I approached my supervisor and informed her of my need to have 2 weeks off again for Annual Training in March. Today I was informed I was being let go because my production “between 5 am and 6 am were not sufficient”. My issue with this reasoning is we’ve only ever been judged on our production for the entire day. They chose to take one specific hour out of a 9-10 hour work day and use it against me. I have called in sick twice in almost 4 years. I am never late. I never leave early. I always do the right thing, the safe thing, and perform at or near the top every single day on the job. All I want is to be treated fairly, and my job back.

  2. I was fired from my part time job the day I went to the military MEPS, I woke up at 4am, came back to town at 4:45 and worked until 9pm and was told to choose my job or the Army because they couldent have me leaving for no good reason.
    This was 2 weeks ago. Anything I can do about this? I just got the job, it was only a one time part time and it pays low, just enough to cover bills before I enlist. Any advice?

  3. These laws don’t protect you unless the employers say and you must have it recorded, “you’re fired because you are in the military”. If those words don’t come out of their mouth then this law does not protect you. Each state has its own set of rules, such as free to work which means either party can fire you at any time for any reason. This law does not protect you from that if they did we wouldn’t have a problem in the US or this conversation. The biggest issue with employers once you’ve told them about your situation; employers will tend to make excuses such as giving you a performance error or trying to force you to quit, finding something about you to have it documented. That way they wouldn’t be in trouble in court for firing you and can rely on false evidence in court. This is very extremely difficult to win in court, there is no record of anyone winning in court for something like this. Good luck.

  4. I just got fired after 6 years. We had some differences back in December in which it was told my only “punishment” might be that I’d have to come to the office to work rather than from home. January 17, I was called in and fired. No warning no reason. It just so happens that I’m leaving for BOLC in April until August. The only thing that has changed is my military service in 6 years. I’ve given them advance notice fir a long time that this was coming. I just get the boot.

  5. I just did my AT for two weeks and as soon as I got to work they fired me because they “needed people to work weekends” I worked pretty much every single weekend besides my drill weekend and AT

  6. Wow I see some real bs comments on here. First let’s be clear the law we are all talking about is userra and yes it does 100% protect your job by law. Now whether your employer abides by that law or not is up to them but it’s hefty if they dont. Under userra law violations your employer will be held accountable to pay double your wage for time off work and that’s not including any liquidated damages you may have due to it. (Car, house, credit issues) etc. If your commenting negatively and your a service member or vet I get it. I’m a vet myself (soon returning service member) once my suit is settled along with living situation being suitable again. But we have to stand up for each other because no one else will. These laws are everything that we have fought for and also entitled too. Not standing for our rights makes our terms of service and the time we spent away for nothing. We should stand and all fight for what’s right. And if your asking is it worth it, well I asked myself that too but when I had my car repossessed because my job didn’t put me back to work I had no choice. Its been 4 months in my journey now since my return and I’m at 50k in my suit. Now don’t get too excited everyone’s case is different and always make sure to keep as much evidence as possible including any witnesses. This includes family and friends not just coworkers. My situation well I’m in process of nursing school and a student. I signed up in April and gave my company notice a day after. (Keep in mind I wasn’t leaving till May a whole month later) Initially my boss wasn’t happy and said they couldn’t hold my position. I immediately went to HR and found an email Monday morning from my boss apologizing. So I left for duty in good standing with my employer (important). Shortly before returning and poor communication due to duty restrictions my employer called asking about my return. I called back and stated I did not know of my return due to being injured durring duty. Little did I know I would return 3 days later (love the army) and got a voice mail saying (from my new director) that they weren’t holding my position. That weekend I returned there was a hurricane. Ok so hurricane is over and I go into hr Monday or Tuesday and was told by the HR rep I delt with prior to leaving that she would get ahold of my director. Well after two weeks of chasing them after many ignored phone calls and messages , I was walked into my HR directors office and told that they didn’t hold my position but there were many nursing positions available, however I’m not a nurse yet. So upon walking me out she told me thank you for your service. (The moment she new she fucked up) thankfully I have a good military baring and was able to keep my composure. Mind you I got the famous girlfriend call on the bus ride home. So I called ESGR and they sent me another email of my rights to send them (this was already done by my recruiter) so I started looking into other channels, talking to attorneys etc. I ended up calling esgr back 3 months later and got an extremely rude ombudsman to take my case. After fighting with him he says they want to give you your job back and I said great but what about my car. Long story short he told me to grow up and we had some words. So again going through the channels. I called Dept of labor and spoke with vets. I considered filing a congressional but decided to go with an attorney since damages were already involved with a repossesed car and an eviction on the way that all could have been avoided if they would have just let me back to work when I had returned. Long story short still in suit but it’s a win with my lawyer and with documented evidence and as much as I have this case will be alot of money plus it ain’t me paying these attorneys fees. However my suit hasent been a walk in the park and wished honestly the right thing was done and this whole thing was avoided. Now remember I mentioned about the pissed off vets here ? I was a combat engineer and still never had a proper welcome home, I’ll let your imagination tell you what I wanted to do to this place of employment. In the end my case will see well over 50k and I’ll be able to still have my job back because I cannot be discriminated against for exercising my userra rights. My job will also be protected for a year and not able to be fired freely in a right to work state. If they don’t take me back or they fire me under a bs cause or if I’m even treated unfairly, well let’s just say I’m not going to have to rely on my g.i. bill for school. Stay sharp and keep your head up soldiers. Do the right thing even when its hard as remember those bct standards you were taught.

  7. Sequoyah ozorowsky,
    I work in the legal field, but this is way outside of my area of expertise. My boyfriend is dealing with a situation with his job right now that we are pretty sure is due to his military service. I do not think when they hired him they understood exactly what it meant. I honestly do not think they have ever had an employee that was in the National Guard. Before he left for AT everything was fine, and when he came back the attitude of everyone that worked in the shop with him changed to one of discontent I guess you would say. He was sent home this past Thursday and told they knew he had been under alot of stress lately and they wanted him to take the weekend and relax. Monday when he got back he was sent home with pay and told the issue has been bumped up to HR and they would get back to him. He has no idea what the reasoning is for even involving HR. He has been told is work/results were fantastic. He never heard back so he text his boss last night and finally got a response 2 hours later to be there at 9:30 today. He is sure he is getting fired, and still has no clue what he supposedly did wrong. He informed them when he started of his at dates and that he had ALC the entire month of October. He also informed them that his unit was part of a disaster response team which means in the event of a disaster he could be activates with little notice. It just happens that this all has occurred around the same time two storms were set to move into the Gulf at the same time, and now one is predicted to make landfall as a cat. 3. I am not sure if it can be proven that their actions are due to his military service, but he has it in a text message that their meeting on Thursday was strictly about his well being, as far as his job performance there is no issues.

  8. I am a be member of National Guard. In the middle of April 2021 I started new job in property management as admin coordinator. I am a full time post-graduate student, and it was crucial for me to successfully balance my work and school. 3 days prior my Annual Training my employee decided to switch me to the Property Manager position because the person who currently performed these duties were failing her job. I accepted the offer verbally, stating that I will do my best, “but I need a transition plan to takeover all open tasks”. In 3 days after the switch to a new role I left for AT. When I came back I experienced a flow of emergency or long-lasting tasks that were not taken care of, and I was trying to take care of it the best I could. I raised this concern to the managing director, and mentioned that compensation for new role was never offered. Finally, when all my tasks were taken under control, employer decided to “let me go”, as my performance was “not there”. I have only been at the new role for a month.
    I am sure absence during my military orders impacted my performance, however I was new at this role, and never got a proper transition.

    Steven and Andrew Sack are incredible people. They went above and beyond what anyone would expect to get an equitable solution on my behalf. I cannot recommend them more highly. The result in my case would not have been possible without their work. Andrew was responsive, clear, and immensely helpful. Also, Steven's book is a great reference for general employment questions.

    I appreciate his legal counsel. I went through series of abuse at work but it was not something that I could prove easily. I wish I knew him while I was getting abused but I came to find him after I got laid off. Due to the size of the company being one of the largest corp and have extensive legal team and having let go of many other people with me didn't help my case much. I needed to speak to someone who has realistic approaches and can tell me what I can expect. If you speak on the outcome wise, it wasn't any different before and after I paid $300 so some people might see it as waste of $300. For me, Steven's consultancy made me move on and helped me let go of things that I went through. He encouraged me in a very realistic way and I think I will sign my release and move on as company gave me 2 months to find a job plus more severance. I know most people would have moved on but I wanted answer. Steven's answer was very realistic and in fact was sad but that's not his problem to resolve. American corporations can bully an individual and find a way to make it legal. Steven felt bad about what happened but he gave me what the outcome would be like and essentially said it isn't illegal to bully someone and proving it is due to my autism is not something that can be proved easily. I thank Steven for being my therapist on legal part and I believe that was worth $300 for me. Thank you.

    I am grateful that I was referred to Steven Sack by another law firm. I felt my options were limited and that perhaps a satisfactory resolution was impossible. Then I met Steven Sack. Professional, no-nonsense, and extremely empathetic is what I found within 5 minutes of speaking with Steven. His guidance and support in navigating the process was invaluable. His expertise led to a quick and positive outcome - a severance much more than I had imagined. I am grateful for his hard work and dedication to my case. I highly recommend Steven Sack without reservation.

    I highly recommend Steven Sack. You'll get efficiency, experience, and respect.I was a part of a structured layoff and was referred to Steven Sack. I'm really glad I was able to have him look over my contract and termination and give me the peace of mind that I was treated fairly and walked away with the best possible terms. When you're suddenly let go, emotions and stress can run hotter than normal, but Steven is a sensible, realistic, and pragmatic person who respects your situation and helps you understand what's going on. He brings his experience so that you can breathe a little easier in letting him handle the negotiations and what would be stressful conversations to handle yourself. He's communicative and will let you know the status as things progress, so you're not worrying about updates. Again, I highly recommend you reach out no matter your situation as the consultation process is very easy and Steven is very responsive.

    From our first interaction I knew that Mr. Sack was the right lawyer for me. He is a man of strong character who truly believes in fighting for what is right. He has a deep passion for the law & his clients. Mr. Sack doesn’t just talk a good game he stands behinds his convictions. He is direct & to the point when speaking with you. He said from the start that he would be honest & straight forward with me & he was, even when I did not necessarily want to hear the truth. He is compassionate & truly listens to his clients, but he will always tell them the hard truths about their case.Mr. Sacks years of experience speak for itself. Within a matter of several phone calls & emails to myself, my employer & their council he negotiated for me a much-improved severance package. A package that reflected my years of dedicated service, & the value I brought to my former employer. I was as a 23-year veteran employee with an impeccable personnel file & a strong reputation both inside the company & within my field.Bottom line, Mr. Sack is a seasoned professional with a direct, no-nonsense, take-charge approach towards working with his clients & negotiating for them. I would highly recommend him & would not hesitate to use his services again.-Christine TenEyck

    This review comes less than 1 week of meeting Steven. From the first telephone call he was confident, professional and honest. He comes with experience that equal results. I was referred to Steven by another law firm for his expertise with my employment situation. I’m so happy the connection was made. I was given an appointment for the same evening for a consultation, though I opted for another day. In less than 72 hours..Huge progress was made. I have a ways to go but I’m convinced that I’m in good hands with Steven. I also received a FREE signed hardcover copy of Steven’s best selling book “FIRED!”. Thank you Steven you are THE BEST.. hands down.

    Steven Stack helped me with an unfair severance package.I had one session with him and he helped me get triple my severance and additional bonuses by taking his advice and reading his book. If you have an unfair severance, his time and advice is worth it.Steven does good work. He's the real deal. I'm so grateful for his generosity with his time, and helping people in cases big and small.
    I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Steven Mitchell Sack, Esq. this year.Steven is honest with his clients, sets realistic expectations about a case, and always follows through on his promises.I was referred to Steven by a friend of mine, his former client, and now I myself can highly recommend Steven to anyone seeking legal help in labor relations.
    Steven was straight to the point, thorough and extremely respectful regarding all matters surrounding my employment termination. As a young person who had never hired a lawyer before, I am very thankful that I found Steven and that he was on my side. Steven valued my concerns and was a pillar of education and support for me. Steven Sack is the attorney you want to represent you, I cannot thank him enough for all of his help.

    Steven was so helpful and patient. I had never been terminated from a job or worked with a lawyer before, so I had a lot of questions and anxieties. He not only explained my rights and helped ease my concerns around the situation, but he was even able to negotiate a better severance contract for me. He is incredibly responsive and I look forward to reading his book.

    I had a great experience with Steven Mitchell Sack. He was very empathetic, detail oriented and extremely knowledgeable of employment law. He returned my calls and e-mails quite promptly, and was very clear and honest with what to expect. When it came to negotiating my severance package, this attorney came through for me. He’s tough, but knows how to talk to lawyers, particularly in my case as we were dealing with a huge company. Thank you Steve, I’m so appreciative of your help.

    Steven pulled victory from the clutches of defeat. My situation was grim and I had no leverage in negotiating my severance. Steven stepped in, didn't over promise, and got me much better terms. He's great. An absolute miracle worker.
    Mr. Sack helped me get a severance when my employer had no intentions of providing me with one, after I was terminated. He tells you the truth; no bs, even though it might not be what you want to hear. He always answered my calls personally and exlpained next steps in details. He fought for my rights, and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend!!

    Steven is an incredible person that also happens to practice his craft on a level that will impress you out the gate. Hiring him and talking to him will immediately give you peace of mind. One thing to be careful of is that after working with him you will start expecting more from every other lawyer you ever work with!

    Steven is amazing. When working with him he is easy to understand, transparent, and does what he says he's going to do. He actually answers his phone when you call and gets back to you promptly -- a quality that's becoming quite rare these days!I'm very glad I was referred to him.

    I first heard of Steven on a morning radio show talking about his new book, Fired! Coincidently soon after that I needed somebody like him.Steven is super smart, very knowledgeable, thorough, and understands what a person is going through who is either accepting an offer or just got laid off or fired. He was very prompt to respond and turned things around within hours. Best part, his hourly rates are very reasonable.Steven is now on my permanent call list for all things employment law.

    Mr. Steve Sack did a great job with negotiating my employment separation agreement. He was able to get me more money in severance and an additional week of PTO. In addition, he was diligent with constant follow-up on my behalf with my former employer's attorney (who were very slow to respond), and with me for revisions in the agreement and obtaining the proper signatures over the course of several months. I would definitely recommend him.
