DOL Website on Proposed New Regulations

The U.S. Department of Labor has created a web page covering its proposed changes to the FMLA. The web page contains the text of the proposed changes, FAQ’s, and information about how to submit comments.

According to the Department’s press release:

Proposed changes include increased notice obligations for employers so that employees will better understand their FMLA rights, while revising the employee notice rules to minimize workplace disruptions due to unscheduled FMLA absences. The proposal also contains technical changes to reflect decisions by the Supreme Court and lower courts. A new section addresses recently enacted legislation to expand the FMLA entitlement to 26 workweeks for certain military family members caring for a service member with a serious illness or injury.
