Employment Rights

Family Military Leave
 
On November 17, 2008, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) issued highly anticipated revisions to the 1995 regulations interpreting the 15-year-old Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), 29 U.S.C. §2601 et seq. The new regulations also clarify the first-ever amendments to the FMLA, which were signed into law in January 2008, granting additional leave entitlements to military family members.
