Military-Leave Complaints Can Be Filed Online

The Department of Labor has launched a new service that allows National Guard and reserve service members to file Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) complaints via the department's website.

"This new online form will make it easier for National Guard and Reserve service members to alert us to any job-related problems they may encounter because of their service to our country," says U.S. Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

Developed by the Labor Department's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS), the form is called the VETS Form 1010.

The online form is the latest in a series of compliance-assistance efforts undertaken by the Department of Labor to increase employee and employer awareness of USERRA. Others include:

  • Providing a poster that spells out rights and responsibilities under USERRA for display in workplaces. It can be downloaded here.
  • Providing briefings and technical assistance to more than 280,000 service members and others on USERRA;
  • Distributing public service announcements to increase awareness of USERRA rights, and
  • Publishing proposed USERRA regulations, which explain the law and are expected to be officially released in the fall.

USERRA protects the job rights of individuals who voluntarily or involuntarily leave employment positions to undertake military service. The law also prohibits employers from discriminating against past and present members of the uniformed services and applicants to the uniformed services.
