Final rule will expand FMLA for military families and clarify rules for workers and employers

The U.S. Department of Labor has published a final rule on Nov. 17 to update its regulations under the 15-year-old Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) — a measure that will help workers and their employers better understand their rights and responsibilities, and speed the implementation of a new law that expands FMLA coverage for military family members.

    Hi Scott,
    Do you think congress will change FMLA to include all companies with 25 employees? That would affect Mercer. I also read that they were considering making at least part of FMLA leave paid leave as it is in California. Thanks!

    No, at this point it will remain at 50/75 rule, 50 employees within 75 mile radius of the office location.
