Providing a Strong Voice Against Military Discrimination

Military discrimination can be subtle. Whether you were passed up for a promotion or were denied an increase in salary based on your military service, this is illegal. Employers are also entitled to hold positions for servicemen called to active duty and cannot avoid hiring employees serving in the reserves. The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) of 1994 protects employees against all forms of discrimination.

If you or your loved one was the victim of military discrimination, entrust our law firm to protect your rights. We know how to gather the right information and structure a strong claim. You can be confident that we will take every measure possible to preserve your rights, whether you are in active duty or a service member seeking veterans' rights.

Fighting Back Against Violations of the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act

The Veterans Employment Opportunities Act provides veterans with advantages when applying for federal employment. Veterans who served during a war or a military campaign are given points used to their benefit when seeking a federal position. Additional points are allocated for veterans who were injured while serving. Federal agencies are required to take into account an individual's veteran status when hiring federal employees.

If you are a veteran who applied for a federal position, you should be given preferential treatment over veterans with fewer points. Our firm knows how to secure your rights through filing a claim with the Department of Labor or with the Merit Systems Protection Board. Our legal team will take every opportunity possible to show you had the same qualifications and were entitled to the position based on the points you have earned.

Our federal employment law attorneys understand veterans' employment rights. We recently published the third edition of the " Federal Employees Legal Survival Guide", which includes a chapter on veterans' employment rights.
