Savage v. Federal Express Corp.


In 2014, Kenneth E. Savage filed a lawsuit alleging that Federal Express Corp. violated the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (“USERRA”) by failing to provide him with the required pension credits.

In the district court, Federal Express was granted summary judgment on Savage’s USERRA pension claim.  On appeal, the Sixth Circuit reversed the grant of summary judgment on Savage’s pension claim, holding that FedEx’s formula for calculating servicemembers’ pension credits is at odds with Section 4318.

In 2018, Savage and FedEx settled the case.
