Washington Army National Guard USERRA Cases
These are two separate cases involving two Washington Army National Guard Soldiers, 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.
