Castelli: New law aims to preserve public jobs of those who serve


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Thursday signed a law that enhances job security for public employees serving in the military, according to Assemblyman Robert J. Castelli, who authored the measure.

According to Castelli, “The new law amends the Civil Service Law and the Military Law to prohibit public employers from abolishing positions based on a person’s military status. Under the measure, public employers are mandated to comply with the Federal Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act (USERRA) of 1994, and public employers are expressly prohibited from denying employment, employment benefits, or re-employment rights to any person or prospective employee based on past or current military service.” He also thanked state Sen. Greg Ball for steering the bill to passage in the Senate.
