Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.
- The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) is a federal law that provides leave rights for public and private employees with military obligations. Among other things, USERRA requires employers to reinstate employees returning from military leave and to train or otherwise qualify returning employees. See Nevada Military Leave.
- Nevada law will apply in instances where it provides greater benefits, protections and/or rights than federal law. See Nevada Military Leave.
- A Nevada employer may not terminate the employment of a member of the Nevada National Guard because the member is ordered to active duty or service of the State of Nevada. Any employer violating this requirement is guilty of a misdemeanor. See Nevada Military Leave
- Public employees returning from military duty are provided with further benefits with respect to leaves of absence and job restoration and benefits. See Public Employers.
