Department of Labor Updates FMLA Information

The US Department of Labor has issued new posters regarding Family and Medical Leave Act Compliance as well as a new Employer’s Guide to the FMLA.  The Labor Department indicates the Guide is issued “in an effort to increase public awareness of the FMLA and of the various Departmental resources and services available to the public.”  The Guide is available at: https://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/employerguide.pdf.  The new poster can be printed directly from the website: https://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/posters/fmlaen.pdf.  The Department of Labor has indicated that employers may still use the 2013 version of the poster to comply with the posting requirement.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) applies to employers with 50 or more employees within at 75 mile radius.  It provides for unpaid leave from work for certain medical, family, and military events.  Employers with questions should contact an attorney for more information.
