The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) says it has begun increasing its enforcement efforts on employers that it suspects discriminated against military members returning to the private-sector workforce.
In the first six months of 2009, DOJ filed 14 lawsuits based on violations of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). That’s compared with seven lawsuits in 2007 and three in 2006.
