- 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 National Guard of Nevada or another state because the member is ordered to active duty or service. Any employer violating this requirement is guilty of a misdemeanor. See Nevada Military Leave.
