    April 2017 SA-SHRM Program Announcement

    USERRA Workshop

    SA-SHRM is excited to offer a workshop on the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). LeRoy Frahm, the Ombudsman Director from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve will present an in depth and thorough exploration of USERRA. Balancing the realities of business while supporting a deployment or military service of an employee can be challenging, but knowing your obligations under USERRA will make your job easier. Service Members are a protected class under USERRA and have exemptions from “at will” employment. If you are in Human Resources as a Director, a Specialist or Generalist, or do payroll, pension, insurance, edit your handbook or train supervisors, you will not want to miss this training. You will find LeRoy’s USERRA training, precise and lively.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand USERRA, its history, and origin.

    2. Explore USERRA’s unique definitions, and some little known surprises.

    3. Learn to navigate the statute, and the DOL regulations.

    4. Never confuse eligibility and entitlement.

    5. Understand your USERRA rights and responsibilities.

    6. Get all your questions answered.

    Our Speaker:  LeRoy Frahm

    LeRoy is a volunteer with Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve, trained as an Ombudsman, and received the National Ombudsman of the Year Award in 2009. As the Wisconsin Ombudsman Director, he serves as the USERRA subject matter expert and is responsible for all training and managing a team of ombudsmen. He is also responsible for answering all USERRA inquiries from service members, employers and attorneys.

    Since 1975, LeRoy has provided faculty research and laboratory support in the physical sciences at Lawrence University.
