​Employee Section


USERRA entitles returning service members to all the benefits of employment they would have obtained if they had been continuously employed. The months and hours that the employee would have worked, but for his or her military services, are combined with the months employed and hours actually worked to meet the 12-months and the 1,250 hours of employment required by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The service member's eligibility will depend upon whether the service member would have met the eligibility requirements had he or she not performed military service.
