DOL Issues Employer’s Guide to the FMLA

Yesterday, the DOL issued a comprehensive guide to the FMLA for employers and released a new FMLA poster.  The Guide is a must read for employers covered by the FMLA and includes chapters addressing all phases of compliance, including the interaction of the FMLA with other federal and state laws and employer policies.  The Guide also has a handy visual aid for employers titled “The Employer’s Road Map to the FMLA” which shows each stop along the road from coverage to reinstatement.  Employers are not required to use the new poster.  The DOL website makes clear that Employers may continue to use the FMLA poster that was issued in 2013.

The Guide is here:
