Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (“USERRA”)

A federal regulation that requires employers to meet certain requirements for employees who are involved in the uniformed services. The rights cover: COBRA, medical, dental, healthcare flexible spending accounts, life insurance and accidental death and disability, long-term care and retirement. A covered employee who takes a leave for service in the uniformed services may continue these benefits until up to 24 months from the date on which the employee’s leave for uniformed service began.
