  • The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) is a federal law that provides leave rights for employees with military obligations. Ohio law expressly adopts the employee protections provided by USERRA. See Ohio Military Leave.
  • An employee who is the spouse, the parent or a person who has or had custody of a member of the uniformed services when that member is deployed or injured is entitled to two weeks of unpaid leave under certain circumstances. See Ohio Military Family Leave Act.
