New FMLA Rule: What You Must Know About Qualified Military Exigency And Caregiver Leave
|Date / Time:
Recently, the DOL implemented a final rule that carries out amendments the National Defense Authorization Act of 2010 made to FMLA. While this recent guidance isn't exactly controversial, it's still important for employers to ensure their policies and practices related to military caregiver and qualified exigency leave align with the new rule, effective March 8, 2013.
The DOL's final rule also includes a provision addressing the hours-of-service requirement for FMLA leave as it applies to airline flight crews as well as recently issued guidance on how FMLA's self-care of adult children applies.
You need to be up to date on these recent developments, as well as on recently decided federal cases, so you can identify potential holes in your FMLA policies and correct them accordingly to minimize legal liabilities when designating and administering FMLA leave.
