Christie Jimenez v. Holbrook Plastic Pipe Supply, Inc.
From May 2009 through mid-2017 Christie Jimenez worked for Holbrook Plastic Pipe. In mid-2017 she told her boss that she was joining the Army. From May 2017 through May 2020 Ms. Jimenez served in the Army. Following her honorable discharge she asked to return to work at Holbrook Plastic Pipe but her request for re-employment was denied. Since the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act (USERRA) requires employers to give returning veterans their job back Ms. Holbrook brought suit in the Eastern District of New York for the company’s failure to re-employ her. A copy of her complaint and the Court’s order waiving the USERRA filing fee are available here and here.
