After a previous veto, on January 28, 2008, President Bush signed into law the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (?NDAA?), which includes two major amendments to the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (?FMLA?) as it pertains to leave available for employees caring for injured family members of the U.S. Armed Forces. First, the NDAA amends the FMLA to allow employees up to 26 weeks of leave to care for family members injured while on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. Second, the NDAA amends the FMLA to entitle an employee up to 12 weeks of leave under certain circumstances, without reference to medical condition or injury, where an immediate family member is on duty or called to duty in the U.S. Armed Forces.
