DOL Issues FMLA Guide
The U.S. Department of Labor ‘s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has released an Employee Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), a 16-page, plain language booklet deigned to answer questions and clarify a number of issues for employees as well as employers. The new guide specifically addresses:
- Coverage and eligibility
- Qualifying reasons to take FMLA
- FMLA rights and protections
- Employer and employee notices
- Medical certification
- Reinstatement rights
- How to file a complaint
The guide also includes easy-to-follow flowcharts that map out a number of FMLA processes.
The DOL says that a Spanish version of the guide will be available soon, and that WHD plans to issue a similar guidebook on military FMLA leave.
