    • Unraveling the Labyrinth of Duty Statuses of the National Guard

    This 1.25-hour presentation, by Colonel Traci Winston from the National Guard Bureau, reviews National Guard duty statuses. Participants will learn the myriad of State and Federal National Guard duty statuses and types of service, along with how to define what it means and how to determine if a National Guard member is serving in a Title 10 duty status, which is federally funded and federally controlled; Title 32 duty status, which is federally funded, and state controlled; or a State Active Duty (SAD) status, which is state funded, and state controlled. This also addresses how various federal laws and protections - such as the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA), and other federal laws - apply to National Guard members in each duty status.

    • Federal Government’s USERRA Enforcement Program and USERRA Hot Topics

    From this 1.75-hour presentation, Andrew Braniff from the U.S. Department of Justice, and Deborah Birnbaum and Paul Marone from the U.S. Department of Labor will provide an overview of the Department of Labor’s and the Department of Justice’s USERRA enforcement portfolio. Participants will learn the processes by which cases are investigated and conciliated by the Department of Labor, and how referred cases are prosecuted by the Department of Justice. This session will also review hot topics in USERRA law, focusing on the statute’s reemployment, discrimination, and pension related provisions.
