DOL Issues New FMLA Regulations Effective March 8, 2013
February 25, 2013
The NDAA amendments to the FMLA's military caregiver leave provision will: Provide families of eligible veterans with the same job-protected FMLA leave currently available to families of military service members. Enable military families to take leave for activities that arise when a service member is deployed. Permit eligible employees to take leave to care for certain veterans with a serious injury or illness incurred or aggravated in the line of duty while on active duty, which manifested before or after the veteran left active duty. Allow military caregiver leave for current service members with a serious injury or illness that existed prior to service and that was aggravated by service in the line of duty while on active duty.
