On February 5, 2013, the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division (“WHD”) issued a Final Rule implementing two expansions of the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) protections granted to covered employees. The first expansion to the FMLA provides families of eligible veterans with the same job-protected FMLA leave currently available to families of military servicemembers and it also enables more military families to take leave for activities that arise when a servicemember is deployed. The second expansion modifies existing rules so that airline personnel and flight crews are better able to make use of the FMLA’s protections.
