Dallas Texas Servicemember Rights
Rights of service members are protected by federal law. Our employee rights attorneys have experience with service members who suffered from employee discrimination, employment retaliation and wrongful discharge, all of which are actionable offenses. This is true whether someone is a past, present or perspective service member. An employer may not refuse to hire, promote, reemploy or provide employee benefits because of service member status.
Two federal laws, the Uniformed Services Employee Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), and the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA), protect service members against illegal actions relating to their employment and otherwise.
Kilgore & Kilgore has represented many service members. Many of our lawyers were in the military or have close family members in the armed services. We are very sensitive to the wrongfulness of adverse employment actions and other actions against service members.
Military personnel have the right to be reemployed in their former or comparable jobs. Employers must also provide the benefits a service member would have received had she or he not served.
We Know What It’s Like
If you are on active duty and face financial obstacles, we may be able to help you use the power of the law to stop collection efforts against you and your immediate family. Under the SCRA, current service members are protected against collection and other adverse actions by:
- Credit card companies;
- Mortgage companies;
- Taxing authorities; and
- Other potential claimants.
You Are Not Alone. Military personnel protection is offered by the capable, compassionate employment law attorneys of Kilgore & Kilgore. We will explain service member rights and explain the steps that should be taken to rectify a situation.
