Just in Time for the New Year – A New FMLA Poster

Contributed by Karuna Brunk

In light of the new Family Medical Leave Act rule, the Department of Labor has released a new poster, which accounts for the changes to military caregiver leave and the special leave calculations for flight crew employees. Employers should display the new poster in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can see it. Employers may start using the new poster immediately, and may only continue to use the old FMLA poster through March 7, 2013.
