Your Legal Rights While on Active Duty Military Service
Authored By: American Bar Association
From the American Bar Association Resource:
If you are called to active duty, you are protected by the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act (SSCRA) and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) unless you are a National Guard member serving in a non-federal status. These important laws give you and your family the special help you may need to meet your legal and financial obligations while you serve your country, and help ease your eventual return to civilian life.
