Individuals choose to join the armed forces without realizing they might face discrimination in the workplace. If you or a loved one was discriminated against due to service member status, it is crucial that you work with a skilled lawyer to ensure that you receive the proper legal protection.
At California Employment Counsel, APC, we focus all of our attention on ensuring that employees are treated fairly in the workplace. If decisions about your performance, promotion or hiring were based on your inclusion in a protected class — race, age, gender or veteran status, for example — you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation. If you have suffered military service discrimination or veteran discrimination, contact our firm.
Discrimination can come in many forms. A member of the armed forces has numerous restrictions on his or her time that can open him or her up to workplace discrimination. Fortunately, the government enacted the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) in 1994. This act states that members of the armed forces cannot be denied re-employment, retention or promotion based on membership. Whether you are a veteran, reservist or member of the National Guard, the USERRA might apply to your unique situation.
If you were discriminated against based on your veteran status or your employer failed to honor your military leave, you might be entitled to legal protection.
