New Online Guidance on the FMLA From the US Department of Labor

For those of you looking for a relatively comprehensive and updated review of FMLA entitlements (albeit from an employee perspective, of course), the DOL has put out two new online resources.

DOL's "The Employee's Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act" is a nice, straightforward review of FMLA procedures and rights. It might be handy to have in an HR manager's toolkit for situations where something needs to be explained, or reviewed with an employee.

DOL also put on a webinar outlining these provisions, and addressing some frequently asked questions. If you have time, you can view the webinar here.

Again, note that both products are geared toward employees. But they provide a useful overview of the statute and the basic rules of engagement for FMLA situations.
