Veteran cannot dispute termination where company argues he was fired for doing Naval Reserve work on company time

BWXT Y-12, LLC, a contractor with the National Nuclear Security Administration, fired Rudolph Escher, a Naval Reservist.  He argued his firing was in violation of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA).  The Sixth Circuit upheld his dismissal, with Judge McKeague writing the opinion.  McKeague and his colleagues agreed with the lower court that summary disposition of Escher's claim was appropriate because, among other complaints, he could not prove that he had authorization to make up Reserve time after hours or to forward Reserve-related e-mails to his home from the office e-mail account.
