  • What is the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)?
  • How does USERRA differ from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
  • Is a veteran with a service-connected disability automatically protected by the ADA?
  • May an employer ask if an applicant is a “disabled veteran” when seeking to hire someone with a service-connected disability?
  • What steps should an employer take if asking an applicant to self-identify as a “disabled veteran” for affirmative action purposes?
  • Are there tax incentives for hiring veterans with service-connected disabilities?
  • Where can I get assistance with translating military skills and training to match position requirements?
  • Where can I get information about accommodating service members, veterans or others with traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder?
  • Where can employers find job candidates who are disabled veterans?
