On February 15, the Department of Labor published proposed regulations to the Family and Medical Leave Act in three specific areas: 1) Military Family Leave; 2) Flight Crew FMLA Eligibility; and 3) the manner in which employers calculate increments of FMLA leave. We summarized those changes here.
Public comments originally were due by April 16, 2012. However, last week, the DOL announced that it is extending the due date for comments to April 30. We strongly encourage you to make your voice heard about these proposed regulations.
