Elisabeth White v. ManTech International Corp.
ManTech International is federal government contractor who earns most of its money from the American taxpayer. ManTech employed Elisabeth White as a Product Assurance Specialist. Ms. White was also a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. Ms. White left ManTech’s employment to serve in the military. Months before her honorable discharge from the Air Force Ms. White contacted ManTech so she could return to work. ManTech gave her the run-around, forcing her to apply for work for numerous jobs at the company even though USERRA requires that a company re-employ a returning veteran within, at the most, 14 days of requesting to return to work, and do so without having to make the returning veteran apply for work as if he or she was just starting out with the company. After months of getting the run-around ManTech finally offered Ms. White a job that, initially, paid her less than what she was making before going on military duty.
Ms. White exercised her right to address ManTech’s failure to properly re-employ her by contacting the U.S. Department of Labor/VETS to make a USERRA claim. Shortly after contacting the DOL/VETS ManTech rescinded its employment offer to Ms. White.
