Happy Anniversary, FMLA!

For local government employers having 50 or more employees, the FMLA is already part of your employment law world.

Now, in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) issued new regulations along with an updated poster requirement and new forms.  Today, March 8, 2013, is the effective date for the new regulations as well as posting the new poster and using the new forms.
