Employer sued over Reserve airman's firing

DOVER, DEL. — The U.S. Attorney’s Office is suing an employer on behalf of a military member whose job was terminated after he returned from required military training.

Regal Contractors fired Lon Fluman, a senior airman at Dover Air Force Base, from his job as a maintenance technician last year after he reported for his second reserve military duty.

The suit claims that by firing Fluman, Regal is in violation of the Uniformed Services Employment Act, which protects uniformed service members’ rights after absences for military service obligations.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that although Fluman satisfied notification requirements before departing, Regal fired him anyhow, saying it didn’t receive sufficient notice.
