Changes to Family and Medical Leave Act Clarify Employer Responsibilities
Date:4/22/2008

SUNRISE, Fla., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Applying the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has confused employers and human resources departments across the country. A recent change and several proposed amendments to the Act have expanded the program to military families, and will clarify application of the Act in both civilian and military situations.

Under current FMLA guidelines, U.S. employers must grant eligible employees up to a total of 12 work weeks of unpaid leave during a 12-month period for one or more of the following reasons:

-- the placement of an adopted or foster child with the employee

-- to care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition

-- as medical leave when the employee is unable to work because of their

own serious health condition

The Department of Labor (DOL) and Congress recently took two important actions affecting the current FMLA rules:

1. New FMLA changes enacted by Congress create special leave rights for

military families.

2. The DOL issued proposed changes to the FMLA that focus on improving

troublesome areas of FMLA administration.

In January 2008, President Bush signed the National Defense Authorization Act, which contained an addition to the FMLA, providing up to 26 weeks of leave for military families. "Employees who are the immediate family member of active duty service members can use up to 26 weeks of leave to care for an injured service member or 12 weeks if they have a loved one who has reported for active duty," said Ashley Kaplan, compliance attorney for G.Neil, a leading provider of human resources and employment law compliance products.

Employers will be required to display an updated posting including the latest military family leave rights under the FMLA along with a description of employees' rights un
