In a new video by Business & Legal Resources (BLR), Senior Legal Editor Susan Schoenfeld discusses the recent Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Final Rule on family military leave issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
In the video, Schoenfeld explains how the Final Rule amends certain FMLA regulations implementing amendments to the military leave provisions of the law made by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and discusses how the Rule will change the way in which covered employers administer family leave for servicemember caregivers and employees with family members in the military.
