Brian Bailey, a Home Depot employee, was recently fired because of his military obligations. This violates a federal law and, thus, the Justice Department filed suit. They allege that Home Depot fired Bailey because he sometimes had to leave work for military obligations. This violates the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994.
Justice lawyers have requested that he be reinstated to his position and receive lost compensation and other benefits. Home Depot has yet to respond; however, this case is significant as many military personnel come home from the war.
