FMLA-covered entities will soon have to update their FMLA materials. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently expanded and revised FMLA regulations with the changes going into effect March 8, 2013.
The new regulations expand leave rights for family military leave and clarify rules for the application of FMLA leave to airline personnel and flight crews. The DOL created a convenient side-by-side comparison chart of the previous and newly expanded regulations to explain the differences.
The DOL has also provided an updated FMLA Poster, which covered entities must post by March 8, 2013. And we at LCW know the first thing you think about when you hear about new regulations… new paperwork! Not to worry – New certification, notification, and designation forms for military family employees are also available.
