- 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. New Mexico's Reemployment of Persons In Armed Forces Act (the Act) supplements the provisions and protections afforded to eligible employees under USERRA. See New Mexico Military Leave.
- An employer violating the Act may be forced to restore the employee to his or her position and compensate the employee for lost wages. See New Mexico's Reemployment of Persons In Armed Forces Act.
