This poster provides information to employees about USERRA, which is The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. This ordinance gives employees who leave their employment positions for military service the right to be reemployed back to their civilian job (certain qualifications are listed on poster). The poster also includes qualifications for employees that have served in the military to obtain health insurance protection.
