This article reports that new rules that fill in details on how to administer health and retirement benefits in compliance with the U.S. Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) require proactive employer responses and leave some issues unresolved, according to benefits experts who have studied the regulations as of March 2006. As detailed and complex as they are, the final regulations of the U.S. Department of Labor leave many benefits-related issues open to interpretation.
