Washington Army & Air National Guard USERRA Cases
These cases involve Washington Army and Air National Guard servicemembers, USERRA, and the Washington Law Against Discrimination.
The first case, Chris Cooper v. Prince Telecom, involves a Washington Army National Guard enlisted Soldier who asked his employer whether he could apply for a promotion but was told, via text message, that “with all your guard stuff and last min training you won’t be able to do it.” A copy of the complaint and embedded text message is available here.
The second case, Megan Rutan v. American Insure-All, involves a Washington Army National Guard officer who was fired six days after informing her boss that she was returning from military duty and demanding that her boss cease the military related workplace harassment she was experiencing. A copy of the complaint is available here.
Both cases resolved shortly after the lawsuits were filed and the legal discovery process began.
The third case, Kevil Wolff v. David Evans & Associates, involves a Washington Air National Guard officer who was denied re-employment upon his return from a thirty-day military leave period. A copy of the complaint is available here.
The fourth case, Marcus Kimm v. Aerotek, Inc. et. al. involves a Washington Air National Guard non-commissioned officer who was denied initial employment after informing his prospective employer, and that employer’s recruiting agency, of an upcoming military deployment. A copy of the complaint is available here.
