Question :
How much notice am I required to give to my employer, prior to a period of service?
Answer :
It is recommended that reservists and National Guard members give as much advance notice as possible, but USERRA does not specify any minimum period of notice. Circumstances arise, especially in a mobilization scenario, when the individual has very little advance notice from military authorities. USERRA’s legislative history indicates that Congress intended that the lateness of the notice to the civilian employer should not defeat the right to reemployment, especially when the individual had little or no notice from the military.
