ABSTRACT
Over 581,462 Reservists and National Guard troops have been called to active duty (DOD, 2007b) since September 11, 2001. Many of these service members have returned or will begin returning to their former jobs. The labor rights of these individuals are codified into law as the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994 (USERRA). Very little is known about USERRA, especially as it affects the legal obligations of small businesses. The paper concludes with comments on future research and the public policy implications of USERRA and small businesses.
