FH+H Defends Military Reservist Who Was Denied Promotions


In a case brought by federal law enforcement officers against their employers, Partner Kevin Byrnes, Senior Associate Samuel Adelmann, and Associate Rachel Leahey filed several actions and appeals against a federal agency for consistently mistreating Military Reservists on promotional and career advancement opportunities within the agency.

FH+H lawyers have argued that numerous Reservists in the agency were subject to anti-military animus and subject to retaliation and reprisal after he submitted evidence establishing what they submitted claims under USERRA (Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act).
