Mandatory FMLA Poster Update Issued!

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued a final rule implementing new regulations regarding FMLA protections. These new rules require that employers covered under the FMLA post an updated FMLA posting.

“The first expansion provides families of eligible veterans with the same job-protected FMLA leave currently available to families of military service members and it also enables more military families to take leave for activities that arise when a service member is deployed,” according to the DOL. “The second expansion modifies existing rules so that airline personnel and flight crews are better able to make use of the FMLA’s protections.”

The regulations were revised to implement statutory amendments to the FMLA that occurred under the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 and the Airline Flight Crew Technical Corrections Act. They take effect March 8, 2013.
