The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.

The Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor has issued new guidance in December updating its previous statements on Family and Medical Leave under FMLA. The new position statement can be found at http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs77b.htm or contact one of our BHMK attorneys regarding any issues that your business may have.
