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 second expansion modifies existing rules so that airline personnel and flight crews are better able to make use of the FMLA’s protections.
