Client Success Story:
Veteran’s Rights - Veterans Preference Act – Government Employment
In 2013, the firm helped an honorably discharged U.S. Air Force Veteran gain reemployment with a local government facility who terminated him in spite of the Veterans Preference Act (“VPA”), MCL 35.401, et seq. The VPA gives certain procedural safeguards (such as a fair hearing) and a hiring preference to qualified veterans seeking employment in a public department or public works of the state, county, city, etc., with limited exceptions. Because the local government facility terminated the Veteran without proving that he had committed “official misconduct” or other serious violations and failed to give the Veteran a full hearing, he was re-awarded his position. The firm even helped the Veteran ensure that his unemployment benefits were paid for the period he was unemployed as a result of the facility’s wrongful firing.
