Employment Alert: Department of Labor Publishes New Rules on FMLA Leave


On November 17, 2008, the Department of Labor published a Final Rule (the “Rule”) on family and medical leave. The Rule is primarily in response to the National Defense Authorization Act, which amended the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and provided qualified leave opportunities for family members of military servicemembers. However, the Rule also makes several other important changes that will impact covered businesses nationwide. These changes will take effect on January 16, 2009.
