The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued new Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) regulations which take effect on March 8, 2013. Most of the changes in the regulations relate to the FMLA’s military leave provisions and the Airline Flight Crew Technical Corrections Act. The regulations require covered employers to post a new, updated poster by March 8. The new poster is available on the DOL’s web site.
The new regulations also make some relatively small changes and clarifications in others areas, including how employers should calculate increments of intermittent FMLA leave. The Department of Labor provides a side-by-side comparison of the prior regulations and the new regulations here.
