Assemblyman Mike Davis announced recently that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed AB 2449 (Davis). “This bill will help protect the jobs of our military men and women who have fought and are fighting for our country, so that we enjoy the freedoms that we hold sacred,” Assemblyman Davis said today.
Assemblyman Mike Davis is very adamant about supporting our nation’s military men and women. Current California law allows District Attorneys to help National Guardsmen and Reservists who are seeking redress from employers not complying with USERRA provisions.
AB 2449 (Davis) will expand that same option to City Attorney’s, thereby allowing them to act on behalf California National Guard members and Reservists. This will extend another option for service members and allow them to process their grievances in a timelier manner. Assembly bill 2449 is another step in helping those serving the United States uniformed services by protecting their rights under the Federal USERRA law.
