Uniformed service members and veterans are among some of the most respected individuals in the American workforce. However, when some of these individuals try to secure or continue employment with private employers, they are met with hostility, mistreatment, and discrimination. When uniformed service members and veterans are subjected to this conduct, they are able to turn to the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA) for potential remedies. In addition to USERRA, Ohio protects uniformed service members and veterans through Ohio Revised Code Section 5903. If you or a loved one believes they have been discriminated against on the basis of their military status, contact me, an Ohio employment attorney, to discuss your situation in more detail and see how I can help!
