After bravely and selflessly defending our nation, many veterans face illegal difficulties moving back into the civilian workforce. Kator, Parks & Weiser has proudly represented individual veterans and veteran organizations in fighting to enforce veterans’ rights.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Federal law provides specific protections for military veterans. The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) provides protection for veterans to return to work, and prevents discrimination related to past or future potential military service. The Veterans Employment Opportunities Act (VEOA) guarantees veterans’ preference in applications for certain federal civil service positions.
