Employment-DOL Issues Revised Notice Poster And Model Forms For FMLA

The U.S. Department of Labor (the “DOL”) has issued revised poster notice and revised model forms for the Family and Medical Leave Act (the “FMLA”). The revised forms should be used starting March 1, and the notice poster should be put up and replace the existing notice poster by March 8. An employer may have to revise the model forms to fit its particular situation and/or comply with state and local requirements. The revised forms and notice poster reflect changes to the FMLA regulations made recently to include rules for, among other things, military caregiver leave for a veteran, qualifying exigency leave for parental care, and the special leave calculation method for flight crew employees.

The new notice poster may be found here.
