Late last month, I reported that the Department of Labor had announced proposed changes to the Family and Medical Leave Act regulations with respect to Military Family Leave, Flight Crew FMLA Eligibility and the manner in which employers calculate increments of FMLA leave.

This morning, these proposed regulatory changes were published in the Federal Register (pdf), which means that the public has 60 days, or until April 16, 2012, to comment on them.

We strongly encourage you to make your voice heard about these proposed regulations.  On behalf of our employer clients, I intend to submit comments to the DOL.  If you would like your thoughts, concerns and suggestions to be included in our comments, please let me know.  Please email your comments to me by April 1, 2012 to ensure that we can incorporate them into our submission.
