in Employment, Publications

On February 5, 2013, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued its final rule amending certain regulations related to the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”). As a result, those amendments became effective March 8, 2013. The amendments primarily seek to expand leave for military caregivers and for airline flight crews and attendants. In addition, the final rules require the use of new FMLA forms, and also require that a new poster be used. Links to the new forms and poster can be found at the end of this article. . . 2013 – Amendments to the FMLA Become Effective – March
