The U.S. Department of Labor has issued a final rule implementing two important expansions of protections under the Family Medical Leave Act. The first provides families of eligible veterans with the same job-protected FMLA leave currently available to families of military service members, and it also enables more military families to take leave for activities that arise when a service member 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.
