Hall et al. v. L-3 Communications (USERRA Violations)

Washington Air National Guardsmen Joseph “Mitch” Hall and Nathan Kay alleged L-3 Communications violated the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) by denying employment to Kay and reemployment to Hall, and by discriminating against other Reservists and National Guardsmen who applied for jobs as pilots with L-3. In October 2018, L-3 (then known as L3 Technologies) agreed to pay $2 million to settle the claims of Kay and other class members (non-career members of the National Guard and Reserves who applied for and were denied pilot jobs since 2011) without admitting any liability or wrongdoing.
