Dallas Military Leave Lawyers
Military Leave Job ProtectionWith some exception, an employee may have the right to reemployment if their military leave is five years or less. While on leave, an employee often has the right to earn seniority as the employee would have earned if the employee had not taken leave.
Also, the Americans with Disabilities Act protects employees who are injured while on military leave. If an employee is severely injured while on leave, an employer is required to offer a reasonable accommodation to the employee. Additionally, the employer cannot discriminate against the employee because of the disability. The meaning of the word "disability" covers both physical and mental impairments. Covered mental impairments include PTSD, depression, bi-polar, and many other injuries commonly suffered while being on military leave.
