Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:
I will perform active duty with the United States Navy beginning on September 1. My absence from work for this period of military service is protected by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), 38 United States Code, Sections 4301-33.
My last day at work before I begin military service will be August 1.
I do not wish to take paid leave during my absence and I do not want to maintain health insurance coverage during my absence.
I can be reached at the above address and phone number while I am on active duty. If you have any questions about the provisions of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) you can contact the United States Department of Labor at 1-866-4-USA-DOL (1-866-487-2365).
