The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) recently turned 20. To commemorate this event, the US Department of Labor (DoL) has updated the existing regulations under the FMLA. While the DoL’s new guidance does not contain any unexpected changes, it does update the regulations to account for changes enacted by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 and the Airline Flight Crew Technical Corrections Act. The new guidance also clarifies how intermittent leave is to be used and calculated under the FMLA. The new guidance is effective as of 8 March 2013.
