Let Us Help You Protect Your Rights As You Have Protected Ours

The Department of Justice, in partnership with other federal agencies, is committed to enforcing the federal laws that protect the civil rights of servicemembers. The Civil Rights Division protects a servicemember's civilian employment rights by enforcing the Uniformed Services Emplovment and Reemployment Rights Act ("USERRA"), voting rights by enforcing the Uniformed and Overseas Citizen Absentee Voting Act of 1986 ("UOCAVA"), and financial security through the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act ("SCRA").

The employees of the Department of Justice are proud to serve our nation's men and women in uniform. This site provides information on how the Department of Justice and other federal agencies can help, and what servicemembers can do to protect their rights under the law.
