Summary

  • 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. Utah law will apply in instances where it provides greater benefits, protections and/or rights than federal law. See Utah Military Leave.
  • A Utah employer may not terminate the employment of a member of the armed forces reserves because the member is ordered to active duty or service. See Utah Military Leave.
