HR Fact Friday: FMLA Changes Proposed

Filed under: General HR Buzz6:00 am

The United States Department of Labor (DOL) has issued some proposed changes to its regulations interpreting the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The proposals impact three specific areas: military leave, flight crew eligibility and the calculations on increments of FMLA leave used. The changes to military and flight crew leaves reflect statutory changes required due to Congressional enactment of two separate laws back in 2010 and 2011. However, according to national SHRM, the remaining changes “include the Department’s proposed deletion of a SHRM-supported provision allowing employers to utilize different allotments of FMLA leave at different times of day under certain circumstances related to employees on reduced or incremental FMLA leave.” SHRM notes that, “If this provision is deleted, employers once again will be required to track intermittent or reduced schedule leave in the smallest increment of time used by their payroll systems.” Stay tuned for updates!
