SLG recently prevailed in an arbitration in Tampa, Florida, against Northrop Grumman Corporation. Northrop Grumman fired SLG’s client, a Major in the Air Force Reserve, while he was on active duty. The Arbitrator found that this termination was the result of a “witch hunt” and careless “investigation” in violation of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (“USERRA”). The Arbitrator awarded SLG’s client back pay, front pay, and liquidated damages due to Northrop Grumman’s willful disregard of his rights under USERRA. The Arbitrator also awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses.
