On June 23, 2010, the Department of Labor issued guidance to clarify the definition of "son or daughter" under the FMLA as it applies to an employee taking FMLA-protected leave for the birth or placement of a child, to care for a newborn or newly placed child, or to care for a child with a serious health condition. The regulations define a son or daughter as a biological or adopted child, foster child, a stepchild, a legal ward, or a child of a person standing in loco parentis. The Department of Labor did not modify the Act or its Regulations, but merely clarified this definition.
