You have certain employment protections as a veteran or service member.

Two federal laws prohibit discrimination in employment based on your status as a veteran or service member. Under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, you’re protected from discrimination based on your prior service in the uniformed services; current service in the uniformed services; or intent to join the uniformed services. This is regardless of whether your employer is a private employer, the federal government, a state government, or local government. You may also be protected against discrimination under the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) if you are an employee of a federal contractor or subcontractor and meet the definition of a “protected veteran.” Additionally, under both laws, your employer is also prohibited from discriminating against you because of your attempt to enforce your rights or someone else’s rights.
