New FMLA Regulations for Military Members

The Department of Labor has released revised regulations for the Family Medical Leave Act that apply to members of the military and airline flight crews.   There are not any major changes  but the regulations have expanded some of the definitions, such as who qualifies as a “covered servicemember” and when an injury must have occurred to qualify as a “serious injury or illness” so it is important to keep updated if you or a family member have served in the armed services.  Fortunately, the DoL has posted a handy side-by-side comparison of the changes so you can see what has been modified.

As always, servicemembers who are MNEA members and have questions should contact their UniServ Director right away because this is one of the trickiest parts of a complex statute.
