Bulletin: USERRA Regulations Changed on December 19, 2005

On December 19, 2005, the U.S. Department of Labor published final regulations interpreting the law that protects employment and reemployment rights and benefits of service members upon their return to civilian life. The DOL also revised the language of the notice employers must provide to workers informing them of their rights under USERRA.

- Treatment of pension plan benefits
- Tax treatment of differential pay, and other compensation and benefits
- Burden of legal proof in USERRA cases
- Treatment of independent contractors and tests to determine contractor status
- Amount of time off employees may take before military service
