Pentagon Increases Citizen-Soldiers’ Active-Duty Time

The Pentagon last month eased its limits on the time reservists and National Guard troops can spend on active duty. Until now, these citizen-soldiers couldn’t spend more than 24 cumulative months on active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The cumulative limit is gone; the only remaining limit is on the length of a single tour, which can’t exceed 24 months. The new rules will add to strain on employers, who must comply with USERRA, the federal law that requires reinstating employees who go on military leave.
