Legal Alert: DOL Addresses Effective Date of New FMLA Requirements


The Department of Labor (DOL) has published an information page regarding the recent amendment to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) contained in the Defense Authorization Act for 2008 (NDAA). As discussed in our prior Alert, on January 28, 2008, the President signed the NDAA which, among other things, amended the FMLA to give the ?spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin? of a member of the Armed Forces up to 26 weeks of leave to care for the service member ?who is undergoing medical treatment, recuperation, or therapy, is otherwise in outpatient status, or is otherwise on the temporary disability retired list, for a serious injury or illness.?
