New Family and Medical Leave Act Regulations Expected to Provide Much-Needed Clarification of Expanded Benefits for Military Families
What: The Department of Labor will issue final rules today to update its regulations under the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA). These new regulations will address issues of contention that have arisen from the expanded rights under FMLA that Congress granted to military personnel and their families earlier this year. These expanded rights include time off from work without fear of losing their jobs for servicemembers to put their personal affairs in order before deployment and for family members to care for servicemembers seriously injured in the line of duty while on active duty.
Who: Federal Employment Discrimination Law Attorney Steven L. Herrick, Esq. is available for independent expert commentary, analysis, and questions involving the new FMLA regulations. Herrick has represented employees and military family members who were not afforded their rights under the FMLA. Members of the media may utilize Herrick’s knowledge and experience involving federal employment law for a complete explanation of the new FMLA regulations, including a breakdown of exactly what circumstances will qualify military family members for leave.
When: Herrick is available via phone or in person at the firm’s downtown Washington, DC office or in-studio at your convenience.
