Calling all FMLA nerds! You’ll want to read this.
Every February, the American Bar Association’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee publishes a comprehensive report of significant FMLA decisions handed down by the federal courts in the previous year. This report literally includes every FMLA decision from 2013. This year’s report is as comprehensive as always — it summarizes 2013 FMLA decisions in a user-friendly manner and is a great reference for me throughout the year.
The report can be accessed here (pdf). I highly recommend it as a valuable FMLA resource for HR professionals and employment attorneys. Although my FR colleagues and I played a small role in the publication by summarizing a few cases, all the credit goes to attorneys Jim Paul and Bill Bush, who head up the ABA’s FMLA subcommittee.
