I can’t imagine anything more exciting than having joined Littler earlier this year.  [Click here to read about that virtual love fest.]

But I have found a close second: the arrival of the American Bar Association’s summary of every FMLA case decided in 2018!

Yep, you read that correctly.  Every little scrumptious FMLA decision. 

About mid-February or so, the ABA’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee publishes a comprehensive report of FMLA decisions handed down by the federal courts in the previous year.  [Those little ABA rascals kept it from me this year till March, but I finally found it today.] Although our little FMLA blog catches some of the big FMLA cases as they occur throughout the year, the ABA’s annual report includes all FMLA decisions from this past year. This year’s report is as comprehensive as always — it summarizes 2018 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 encourage you to print it off and keep it by your side as a valuable FMLA resource.

My fellow gentlemen:

On this Valentine’s Day, I just saved your behind.

Leave the dozen roses and box of chocolates at the office. And no need to make a reservation at your favorite restaurant for two.

This year, give your significant other the gift that keeps on giving: the American Bar Association’s annual report of every FMLA decision from 2017.  If this won’t spice up your Valentine’s evening, I am confident nothing will.

Every February, the ABA’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee publishes a comprehensive report of FMLA decisions handed down by the federal courts in the previous year.  Although our little FMLA blog catches some of the key FMLA cases as they occur throughout the year, the ABA’s annual report includes every FMLA decision issued in 2017.

Every. single. one. of. them.

This year’s report was just released and can be accessed here (pdf). I highly recommend it as a valuable FMLA resource for HR professionals and employment attorneys. All the credit goes to Maria Audero, who spearheads the annual summary.

Happy reading!

Why?

Every mid-February or so, the American Bar Association’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee publishes a comprehensive report of FMLA decisions handed down by the federal courts in the previous year.  Although our little FMLA blog here catches some of the big FMLA cases as they occur throughout the year, the ABA’s annual report includes every FMLA decision from 2015. This year’s report is as comprehensive as always — it summarizes 2015 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. All the credit goes to attorneys Jim Paul, Melissa Pierre-Louis and Heidi Parker, who head up the ABA’s FMLA subcommittee.

Enjoy!

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.

Enjoy!

aba_logo_01.jpgAs always, 2012 was an active year for cases involving the Family and Medical leave Act.  Remember the manager who gave his employee the book “No More Hysterectomies” when she asked for leave because she had to undergo a hysterectomy?  We covered that one here.  Or how about the employee who sought leave to care for her mom…on a vacation in Las Vegas?  We covered that one, too.

Although our little blog catches some of the big FMLA cases as they occur throughout the year, the American Bar Association’s Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee publishes an annual comprehensive report that catches virtually all significant cases from the prior year.  It is a great reference for me throughout the year, and I highly recommend it to HR professionals and employment attorneys.  Plus, it’s free!

Feel free to access the 2013 ABA FMLA report here (pdf).  Kudos to Jim Paul and Bill Bush, who head up the ABA’s FMLA subcommittee and serve as the main editors of the report.  Enjoy!

aba_logo_01.jpgEach year, 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.  2011 proved to be an active year for cases involving the Family and Medical leave Act, and this year’s report captures nearly all of them.  It is a great reference for me throughout the year, and I highly recommend it to HR professionals and employment attorneys.

The report can be accessed here (pdf).  Although my FR colleagues and I contributed to the publication, Jim Paul and Bill Bush, who head up the ABA’s FMLA subcommittee, are the main editors.  Enjoy!
