Human Resource law

Hi Reena, I would like more details for my report because it needs to be 5 pages long. Also in your report, you talked about different laws but according to my instructions, I am supposed to Prepare a report on the origins, changes, and current issues surrounding on one of the HR-relevant law. For example, if you choose USERRA, you would find out why the legislation was enacted, how it developed to what it is today, and what challenges it faces in the near future. Some topics will be more interesting than others. Thanks, Nisha

Keeping employment security of volunteers in mind, US congress introduced Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) in 1994, which is a complete redraft of the amended 1940 reemployment statute of US.
