  • Employers are required to retrain employees returning from military leave.

Refresher training is required for returning employees who need it. Employers must help returning employees qualify to return to a job they would have held, or one that nearly approximates it.

For example, an employee works in a warehouse, manually tracking outgoing orders. The employee is called up for military duty and is away from work for six months. While the employee is gone, the warehouse is converted to computerized order tracking. When the employee returns to work, the employee must be trained in how to operate the computer tracking system and given the previous job back.

After the training, if the employee can’t perform the job, the employee must be placed in a position of equal seniority, status, or pay.
