  • Guardsman receives settlement from Army in USERRA case
    The Army has agreed to pay a National Guardsman several years worth of salary to settle charges that the Army violated the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. The guardsman's job as a civilian contractor was "in-sourced" while he was deployed, and the Army declined to rehire him upon his return. "We believe the obligation to rehire him moved from the private sector to the Army when the job moved from the private sector to the Army," said attorney Joseph M. Scaturo.
